For example, something like A000040(n) which would be equivalent to Prime[n]. Something that will return the appropriate term number with nothing more than a reference to the OEIS entry. This must be done only in Wolfram Alpha.

This post I find is NOT a duplicate since I am asking whether or not it is possible to do this completely from Wolfram Alpha. This means NO Mathematica. Therefore it is not a duplicate to Is it possible to invoke the OEIS from Mathematica?

  • $\begingroup$ The closest you can get is "OEIS A000040 terms", but I can't get it to only list the $n^{\mathrm{th}}$ term $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If it's not a duplicate, then it is off topic because we don't take questions about Wolfram|Alpha that aren't concerned with engaging with it from Mathematica. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ As noted by m_goldberg and as noted here (which you should have at least glanced at), pure Alpha questions are off-topic on this site; you can prolly try asking on Community instead. $\endgroup$ Aug 14, 2016 at 2:54
  • $\begingroup$ Oh okay thanks. I'll go ask there. However, I was wondering just now if there was a way to do it where I could use Mathematica but still only from within the Wolfram|Alpha search bar? $\endgroup$
