I think that the directions would be clearer if they were stated as "... maximum number of consecutive primes for values of n starting with n = 0." As is, I found it easy to misinterpret the objective into finding the total amount of primes in a consecutive range of n=0 to n=a. I assumed 0 to a because of the following:Find the product of the coefficients, a and b, for the quadratic expression that produces the maximum number of primes for consecutive values of n, starting with n = 0.
"Using computers, the incredible formula n² 79n + 1601 was discovered, which produces 80 primes for the consecutive values n = 0 to 79."
So since the objective is consecutive primes, I think the description should specifically state "consecutive primes" and not consecutive values of n.
