 Does it continue? 8: Prime together (Posted on 2017-09-30)
Before trying each problem "note your opinion as to whether the observed pattern is known to continue, known not to continue, or not known at all."

Part A: Make a table of n4+1 and 17*2n-1. The odd prime values of each are bold.

```n    n4+1    17*2n-1
0       1        16
1       2        33
2      17        67
3      82       135
4     257       271
5     626       543
6    1297      1087
7    2402      2175
8    4097      4351
9    6562      8703
10  10001     17407
11  14642     34815

21 194482  35651583
22 234257  71303167
```

Part B: Same but with new formulas.

```n   21*2n-1  7*4n+1
0       20            8
1       41           29
