- Aug 4, 2003Hi Virginia
Yours is of the form 6x^2 + 6x + 31, generating primes from x=0 to
Interestingly, Gary's (2x^2 -88x + 997) generates 29 distinct primes
as well but is a different equation than yours.
I just figured that Gary's equation can be reduced to 2x^2 + 29 to
generate his 29 distinct primes from x=0 to x=28 !
