e.g. for k=7, 7*4^n-1 has trivial factor of 3, thus we should take out this factor, and this formula is (7*4^n-1)/3, we need n such that this formula takes prime value. (7*4^n-1 has no algebra factors)

e.g. for k=9, 9*4^n-1 = (3*2^n-1) * (3*2^n+1), thus we need n such that both these two formulas take prime values. (9*4^n-1 has no trivial factors)

e.g. for k=25, 25*4^n-1 has trivial factor of 3, thus we should take out this factor, and this formula is (25*4^n-1)/3, besides, (25*4^n-1)/3 = (5*2^n-1) * (5*2^n+1)/3 (for even n) or (5*2^n-1)/3 * (5*2^n+1) (for odd n), thus we need n such that both these two formulas take prime values.
