On the least prime congruent to 1 modulo $n$

##### Abstract

For any integer $n>1$, there are infinitely many primes congruent to $1\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}\left(mod\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}n\right)$. In this note, the elementary argument of Thangadurai and Vatwani is modified to improve their upper estimate of the least such prime when $n$ itself is a prime greater than or equal to 5.
