I have no idea.

Hm? I just expanded the GF.

### Re: Generating Functions

#### Code:

```gf[x_] := Expand[Sum[x^i/6, {i, 1, 6}]^1000]
CoefficientList[gf[x], x][[
Table[1 + Prime[i], {i, 169, 783}]]] // Total```

That's my code for the problem.

Okay, that much I got. is there any other way other than just brute force expanding, eg., an asymptotic form or something?

### Re: Generating Functions

They are all computationally intensive but an asymptotic form is possible. Also, there is my paper on this problem except much, much larger.
