Hello! I'm looking to do some research on a specific topic and need some advice on where to look. I am interested in primes of the form 3n+1 and 3n+2. Theory has shown that the number of prime numbers less than x is approximately x/log(x). My observations seem to show that primes are approximately evenly divided between the form 3n+1 and 3n+2. I would assume that someone has already proved this and was wondering where I could find this proof?
