Perhaps if you supplied more of the context in which this table appears someone could give a very good guess if not an outright explication.

Re: Prime numbers question

I have stared at this for about a half an hour and cannot figure any rule out that separates the blues from the reds. I've looked up all sorts of different types of primes and nothing seems to work. Probably because I just haven't looked hard enough.
