The prime 8951 is the number of ways to choose 20
arithmetic operators (call them c1, c2, ..., c20) each
either a * or / sign, so that 1 c1 2 c2 3 c3, ..., c20 21
is an integer. This is the largest known prime of that
form. Curiously, it is also a prime that is a sum of twin
primes and their indices, and a primitive prime divisor of
(3^321)/2. [Post]
A total of exactly 8951 "+" signs are required in writing out the partitions of the prime 23 (23 = 22 + 1 = 21 + 2 = 21 + 1 + 1 = ... = 1 + 1 + ... + 1 + 1). Note that 8 + 9 + 5 + 1 = 23. [Beedassy]
