    Okay, here s one... y := (25645421049923/1354101743877) Note that round(y^n) is prime for n := 1 to 18. But then the fun stops. :( What is the next value of n

      Okay, here's one...

      y := (25645421049923/1354101743877)

      Note that round(y^n) is prime for n := 1 to 18.

      But then the fun stops. :(

      What is the next value of n for which round(y^n) is prime?
      I think it must be quite large.
