E272 -- Supplementum quorundam theorematum arithmeticorum, quae in nonnullis demonstrationibus supponuntur

(A reinforcement of some arithmetic theorems, supported by several demonstrations)


Euler looks at primes of the form pp+3qq, all of which seem to be of the form 6n+1 (except 3). He suggests (p. 574) that this has a use in Fermat's Little Theorem.

According to the records, it was presented to the St. Petersburg Academy on October 15, 1759.
