The mistake in expression (1)
// the number of valid n between (p_n1)^2 and (p_n)^2 = integer value of 1/2 . 1/3 . 3/5 ..... ((p_n)  2)/(p_n) times [(p_n)^2  (p_n1)^2  3], //
...depends on it seeming to make an assertion about the number of multiples of each prime as a fraction of the number of integers within the given range?
I believe you, of course. Just trying to get this clear in my mind.
