    Wait.. I thought of that at first.. but threw the option out because most of the numbers in the series aren't prime... 98, 87.. etc.

    Is there a pattern for prime numbers that are the next perfect square minus a prime?

    1 is not (as it is not a prime although 4-3 would be what I was talking about)
    2 is 4-2
    7 is 9-2
    23 is 25-2
    47 is 49-2
    79 is 81-2

    Does this pattern continue forever? Can it be proven?

    Nope, not a pattern

    12^2 = 144... 142 is not prime.

    the series is 100 minus primes in order of increasing numbers...
    98 (100 minus 2)
    87 (100 minus 13)
