Number of primes between integers A and B

For my own enjoyment I created a "formula," modeled somewhat after the
Sieve of Eratosthenes that gives the number of primes (without
necessarily identifying them all) within a specified range of
integers. I suspect it would already exist in the literature but
would like to know where to find it or how it might be expressed. I
guess I really want to know if I've cut new ground or how many times
old ground has already been shredded.
