Another empirical relation i founded was that,
2pn+1=prime number or a number having its factors as prime,where p is a prime number,n is any odd natural number

There cannot be such a function which always gives a prime. Its a well known fact. I think you can find the proof in Titu Andreescu's '104 Number Theory Problems'

I think there isnt.let P-2=x.so P-1=1+x.now,finding the binomial expansion of(1+x)^p and putting it in our expression,it is found that our expression is always divisible by p.

That is why i divided \( P-2 \) , or else it is always composite
