Re: [PrimeNumbers] Re: Prime Number Progressions
Thank you for your email. The progressions are the ordinary arithmetic type.
One of the progressions of 11 primes is:
17 add 44 = 61
61 add 88 = 149
149 add 132 = 281
281 add 176 = 457 and continuing for 6 more terms until a nonprime 2921 is
My program uses a constant to search for the progressions. I started with
pencil and paper and then wrote the program. Except for the progression which
generates 40 primes, the largest progression I have to date generates 29
primes. Perhaps that might be a record. Most of the progressions are with small
numbers because of the limitations of my computer.
