So you have a sequence that may or may not be the numbers you show. You want a formula. Heard of graphs? You have an even number so they are not (all) primes. Even the simplest analysis of this sequence:

8168300941723 0 8203756951684 -35456009961 8304283191943 -100526240259 8541534872809 -237251680866 8746833361583 -205298488774

yields important information. ie it is not a linear sequence, nor is it a pure geometric progression. As you can see it increases by 3.5e10 1.0e11 2.3e11 BUT then only 2.0e11.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
