Thanks. Actually I tested the first 50,000 primes but discarded the kvalues, so I just regenerated the first thousand for you.

There was a program to generate these numbers (not the kvalues, but that is easy enough to change) on the OEIS. I didn't use it though, it was too slow. So I wrote a faster version and submitted to the OEIS along with the first 10,000 values. Now maybe the next person who comes across this will be helped.

Why : 18! mod 23 = 22 and 18! mod 29=28 23 and 29 are multiprimes. The same k make 2 multiprimes. Let us call t(k) the quantity of primes giving p1 as remains. t(1=2 Is t(k) finite or infinite? Is there a simple way to say that a prime number is multiprime or uniprime (some "belongity" test )?

I did not say that. I was talking about t(k) when n goes to infinite. That is different.

The limit does not exist. Probably and
