But that cannot be the challenge.
If A0 and A1 are coprime, the sequance would be trivial: “easy common factor of the sequence with no prime “. So for the sequence to be interesting it is essential that A0 and A1 would be coprime.
GCD[A0,A1] must be = 1.

I think that the webmaster did not write the relation of divisiblity between A0 and A1 because the question was to find a sequence of triplets with the conditions quoted 1 to 4 ”and the A0 A1 are simply to explain the goal of the question.
