   10   while Found=0
   20   P=nxtprm(P)
   30   if P+2=prmdiv(P+2) then
   40    :if P+6=prmdiv(P+6) then
   50    :if P+8=prmdiv(P+8) then
   60    :if P+30=prmdiv(P+30) then
   70    :if P+32=prmdiv(P+32) then
   80    :if P+36=prmdiv(P+36) then
   90    :if P+38=prmdiv(P+38) then
  100    :print P;P+2;P+6;P+8;P+30;P+32;P+36;P+38
  110      :Found=1
  120   wend

finds

 1006301  1006303  1006307  1006309  1006331  1006333  1006337  1006339
 
so the number p is 1,006,301. The other numbers are the primes that qualify p as the answer.
