"Also, 2 and 3 are in the pattern, 2 x 3 = 6, 6n + 1 and 6n -1
As simple as 1, 2, 3.
So to put it another way, multiples of 2, multiples of 3, and multiples of primes (the 6n±1 kind) make up all natural numbers."
"I couldn't agree more. Well stated. I came to the realization when I looked into it myself after Rodin stated he found the pattern to prime numbers. The initial 6n connection took me I think a week to realize. I think the products are…"
"The formula for the primer I originally thought of is (6n±1) which is like two formulas (6n-1 and 6n+1)(note, this does not include (2 and 3). Those two formulas would give you the PRIME PRIMER green columns shown above (5,7,11,13,17,19,…"
"Prime numbers do follow a pattern.
Simply take all the numbers NOT DIVISIBLE by 2 and 3
This will give you a list with two rows, the easiest way to show this is write down numbers (1-6) then continue a row down...
eg.
1 2 3 4 5 …"
