Proof: (related to "Sieve for Twin Primes")

By hypothesis, $n\ge 1$ is an integer and let $f_s:=\left\lfloor\frac {s+1}6\right\rfloor$ using the floor function.



1 $s$ has either the form $6\nu-1$ or $6\nu+1$ for some $\nu\ge 1.$ If $s=6\nu-1$ then $6f_s-1=6\left\lfloor\frac{6\nu-1+1}{6}\right\rfloor-1=6\nu-1=s$. If $s=6\nu+1$ then $6f_s-1=6\left\lfloor\frac{6\nu+1+1}{6}\right\rfloor-1=6\lfloor\nu+\frac 13\rfloor-1=6\nu-1=s.$ In both cases, $s=6f_s-1.$
