Non Sloane Surmise (Posted on 2013-08-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The two sequences given below are related in some manner. Extricate that connection and find the next five terms in each of these sequences. The title provides a clue in this respect.
(A) 247, 364, 481, 715, 832, 1066, 1183, 1417, .....

(B) 874, 1387, 1558, 1729, 2584, 2755, 2926, 3097, .....
*** None of the two sequences is part of the collection in OEIS.

first, name the following three properties as such:
P: sum of the digits is a prime factor
Q: sum of the digits is 13
R: sum of the digits is 19

The first sequence is the integers which satisfy P&Q
The second sequence is the integers which satisfy P&R
they are related because they both satisfy P.  The relation to the title is that while neither of these sequences themselves can be found in OEIS, the sequence formed by the common property P is.
