Say 2^a divides p1 3^b divides p+5 ofcourse you want 2^a~3^b (~sqrt(N)) because then you know large p1,(p+6)1 factors in the oder of sqrt(N), so a=floor(log(N)/log(2)/2) b=floor(log(N)/log(3)/2) you can search p in the form (because 2^a and 3^b are coprime): p=u*2^a+v*3^b, from divisibilities you can get: Code:
v*3^b==1 mod 2^a u*2^a==5 mod 3^b

Surely now, 10 years later, one can repeat Ken's trick to find a couple 40,000digit sexy primes. I added a little friendly competition thread. Have some fun!

YepI And that is what we call a triplet, which at least for large enough numbers is more important than just a pair of sexy primes. 😋

[Worker #1 Sep 18 17:41:47] 9*10^380734+1 is a probable prime! Wh8: 0976AF3D,00000000 And of course it is proven prime with LLR :) Last fiddled with by pepi37 on 20190918 at 16:59

This one has not been yet verified but it looks genuine.
6962 · 31^{2863120}  1 4269952 Digits. Largest of the year. Will rank 20 if verified. https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=130702 Last fiddled with by VBCurtis on 20200304 at 03:06 Reason: Fixed exponent rendering
