No, base 32 family 8{0}V has covering set {3, 5, 41}, thus can be ruled out as only contain composite numbers.   2021-10-06, 23:52 #189 sweety439   "99(4^34019)99 palind" Nov 2016 (P^81993)SZ base 36 1011111010012 Posts New minimal prime (start with b+1) in base b is found for b=908: 8(0^243438)1, see post https://mersenneforum.org/showpost.p...&postcount=992 File https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...RwmKME/pubhtml updated.   2021-10-16, 13:38 #190 sweety439   "99(4^34019)99 palind" Nov 2016 (P^81993)SZ base 36 304910 Posts Conjecture: If sequence (a*b^n+c)/gcd(a+c,b-1) (a>=1 is integer, b>=2 is integer, c is (positive or negative) integer, |c|>=1, gcd(a,c) = 1, gcd(b,c) = 1) does not have covering set (full numerical covering set, full algebraic covering set, or partial algebraic/partial numerical covering set), then the sum of the reciprocals of the positive integers n such that (a*b^n+c)/gcd(a+c,b-1) is prime is converge (i.e. not infinity) and transcendental number. (of course, this conjecture will imply that there are infinitely many such n) For the examples of (a,b,c) triples (a>=1 is integer, b>=2 is integer, c is (positive or negative) integer, |c|>=1, gcd(a,c) = 1, gcd(b,c) = 1) such that (a*b^n+c)/gcd(a+c,b-1) have covering set (full numerical covering set, full algebraic covering set, or partial algebraic/partial numerical covering set), see post https://mersenneforum.org/showpost.p...&postcount=678   2021-10-16, 13:45 #191 sweety439   "99(4^34019)99 palind" Nov 2016 (P^81993)SZ base 36 3,049 Posts Another conjecture (seems to already be proven, but I am not sure that): If all but finitely many primes p divide (a*b^n+c)/gcd(a+c,b-1) (a>=1 is integer, b>=2 is integer, c is (positive or negative) integer, |c|>=1, gcd(a,c) = 1, gcd(b,c) = 1) for some n>=1, then a=1 and c=-1, i.e. (a*b^n+c)/gcd(a+c,b-1) is generalized repunit number (b^n-1)/(b-1) The factor tables have many examples for the special case that b=10, e.g. {2}1 in base 10 is (a,b,c) = (2,10,-11), the section Prime factors that appear periodically lists the primes that divide (a*b^n+c)/gcd(a+c,b-1) = (2*10^n-11)/9 for some n, and we note that the primes 2, 5, 11, 31, 37, 41, 43, ... divides no numbers of the form (a*b^n+c)/gcd(a+c,b-1) = (2*10^n-11)/9, and this sequence of primes seems to be infinite.   2021-10-16, 13:54 #192 sweety439   "99(4^34019)99 palind" Nov 2016 (P^81993)SZ base 36 57518 Posts The smallest generalized near-repdigit primes (i.e. of the form x{y} or {x}y) base b is always minimal primes (start with b+1) in base b unless the repeating digit (i.e. y for x{y}, or x for {x}y) is 1, since the generalized repunit numbers base b may be prime unless b is 9, 25, 32, 49, 64, 81, 121, 125, 144, ... (A096059) bases without any generalized repunit primes, and for a repdigit to be prime, it must be a repunit (i.e. the repeating digit is 1) and have a prime number of digits in its base (except trivial single-digit numbers), since, for example, the repdigit 77777 is divisible by 7, in any base > 7, thus (i.e. of the form x{y} or {x}y) base b is always minimal primes (start with b+1) in base b if the repeating digit (i.e. y for x{y}, or x for {x}y) is not 1, thus, the families A{1} in base 22 and 8{1} in base 33 and 4{1} in base 40 are not unsolved families in this problem (i.e. finding all minimal primes (start with b+1) in base b) although all they are near-repdigit families and all they have no known primes or PRPs and none of them can be ruled out as only contain composites (only count numbers > base), since their repeating digit are 1, and the prime F(1^957) in base 24 (its value is (346*24^957-1)/23) is not minimal prime (start with b+1) in base b=24, since its repeating digit is 1 Last fiddled with by sweety439 on 2021-10-17 at 12:55   2021-10-17, 17:00 #193 sweety439   "99(4^34019)99 palind" Nov 2016 (P^81993)SZ base 36 3,049 Posts The algebra form ((a*b^n+c)/d) of the unsolved families are: Code: base unsolved family algebra form 11 5(7^n) (57*11^n-7)/10 13 9(5^n) (113*13^n-5)/12 13 A(3^n)A (41*13^(n+1)+27)/4 16 (3^n)AF (16^(n+2)+619)/5 16 (4^n)DD (4*16^(n+2)+2291)/15 See https://stdkmd.net/nrr/exprgen.htm for the algebra form calculator (only for base 10 families), also see page 16 of https://cs.uwaterloo.ca/~cbright/reports/mepn.pdf   Thread Tools Show Printable Version Email this Page Similar Threads Thread Thread Starter Forum Replies Last Post sweety439 sweety439 134 2021-09-28 07:04 sweety439 Miscellaneous Math 6 2019-11-25 07:37 davar55 Puzzles 13 2018-03-15 14:46 Flatlander Puzzles 40 2011-02-10 09:42 davar55 Puzzles 5 2008-11-02 00:08
