Do you think that the formula p=6n+1, where n, is a whole number, will produce a prime number more than 50% of the time? Give evidence to support your conclusion

  • elementary-math - ,

    prime Numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43

    prime Numbers are those, who must divided by itself and by 1

    so n=2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97.............

    now put the value of n in the formula

    for example
    p=6n+1
    p=6(2)+1
    p=12+1
    p=13
    fifty percent more this number should be 13/2=7.5
    so 13+7.5=19 or 20 round it

    so
