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

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
