Let us define a "Very Curious Number" as an odd "Curious Number".

If such a number exists, what is the smallest one? – Robert DeLisle · 3 months ago

What's a Curious Number?Log in to reply

– Robert DeLisle · 3 months ago

It is the thing that led me to this list of primes linked to a B.O puzzle. The item states that a positive integer is "curious" if it can not be made a prime by changing a single digit. e.g. 4 is replaced with 3, 56 can be made 57, 195 can be made 199. There are primes in every decade up to 199, so a one digit substitution is available in the last digit. But at 200 there are no primes between 201 and 209 and the lower zero must be changed otherwise divisible by 10. So 200 is the least curious number, answering the puzzle, and so are the rest of the 20x, with x even. Clearly there will be many more ending in a even digit that must be changed when there is no prime in the decade. So the idea of a "very curious number" proposed is an ODD curious number (if there is such a thing). 201 can be made 211. 203 can be made 223. 207 can be made 257. 209 can be made 269. None of them is curious. Being odd makes a big difference.Log in to reply

It can be used to generate problems, such as Sean Ty's that he just posted.

It can be used to check if a number is a Fermat liar.

It also greatly lessens the amount of time wasted on tests for primes.

It can be used to solve problems such as finding the number of integers<1000 such that \(\dfrac{p-1}{2}!\pm1\equiv 0 \pmod p\)

Or if a number is \((p-1)!+1\equiv 0 \pmod p\)
