    I have found counterexamples myself eg x=11, y=125, and some n do not hold. n must be relatively prime to y, it seems. It would still be a very inefficient way

      It would still be a very inefficient way of testing for primes, and
      of theoretical use only.
      Fibonacci like series are inefficient, as Chris Caldwell remarked
      once.
