The only prime numbers with a difference of 1 are the numbers 2 and 3. More consecutive numbers are not possible, since one of the two would have to be even - and an even number is divisible by 2, and therefore not a Prime number (2, of course, is a prime number, but larger even numbers are not).

The most you can expect with larger prime numbers is a difference of 2. Very large such "prime twins" are known; a few are 3 and 5; 101 and 103, but much larger ones are known, as well. It is not yet known whether there are an infinite number of twin primes.

Did number two and three are prime numbers they are also consecutive numbers. Are there other parents of prime that are consecutive numberswhy or why not?

No other prime numbers are consecutive because there aren't any other even prime numbers.


A pair of consecutive co prime numbers?

Any pair of consecutive integers is co-prime.


What numbers have a prime gcf?

Any consecutive even numbers.


What is the definition of a consecutive prime number?

Prime number next to any prime number is called consecutive prime number. Eg:- 2,3,5,7 are prime numbers


Can 3 consecutive whole numbers be prime?

No. Any three consecutive numbers will have at least one of them which is divisible by 2, which means it cannot be prime. And since 1 is not considered a prime number, it cannot happen.


Can 3 consecutive whole numbers be primes?

3 consecutive numbers cannot be prime factors. Any three consecutive numbers would include at least one even number. The only even prime number is 2, and (2,3,4) doesn't qualify.


Are any consecutive natural numbers also prime numbers?

2, 3Those two are consecutive, natural and prime numbers! It's as easy as one, two, three! (Pun intended)


Is it impossible to find three consecutive odd numbers that are prime?

After (3, 5, 7), you can't have any more such "triplets", since one of the three must needs be a multiple of 3.


Two prime numbers that are consecutive natural numbers?

2,3 and 1 and 2 are the only consecutive primes, as any higher even number has a factor of 2.


Why arent there any other consecutive prime numbers besides 2 and 3?

Because any consecutive pair of numbers would involve an even number which will always be divisible by 2. As 2 is the only even prime number, 2 and 3 are necessarily the only sequential prime numbers.


How do you know that there are not more than two consecutive prime numbers?

Because any number divisible by 2 is not a prime number, so any even no. is divisible by 2. Thus any number higher than 3 will be divisible by 2. Therefore the only consecutive prime nos. are 1, 2 and 3


Are there any other consecutive prime numbers beside 2 and3?

No.


Is it that 3 consecutive whole number can be prime factors Explain?

3 consecutive numbers cannot be prime factors. Any three consecutive numbers would include at least one even number. The only even prime number is 2, and (2,3,4) doesn't qualify.


How can you choose a number so that it will be relatively prime to any other number?

Any two consecutive numbers are relatively prime.


What is consecutive composite numbers?

Basically, composite numbers are the non-prime numbers. Take a table of prime numbers, and look for any two prime numbers, one after the other, that have a difference greater than 2. Any numbers in between are consecutive composite numbers. For example, the next prime number after 13 is 17; that makes 14, 15, and 16 three consecutive non-primes, i.e., composite numbers.


Why aren't there any other pairs of consecutive prime numbers?

Ah hah! You didn't say so, but you must be talking about 2 and 3 ... the only two consecutive numbers that are both prime numbers. There can't be any others. Because if you have any other two consecutive numbers, one of them has to be an even number ... divisible by 2. Since that number is divisible by 2, it's not a prime number.


What are some relatively prime numbers?

4 and 9 Any consecutive whole numbers.


What is the smallest difference between any two consecutive prime numbers?

Do any consecutive prime numbers have a difference of 8?

There are many cases of prime numbers with a difference of 8, for example (3, 11), and (101, 109). Look at a list of prime numbers, and you will quickly find more examples. If you mean, without other prime numbers in between, I believe the first such pair is (89, 97). I am pretty sure you will find more - just look at a table of prime numbers.


Can there be 3 primes that are cosecutive natural numbers?

As the number 1 is considered a special case and not a prime, there cannot be three consecutive numbers that are prime. Any three consecutive numbers must include at least one even number. With the exception of the number 2, no even numbers are prime.


What is the Product of two consecutive prime numbers?

There is only one pair of consecutive prime numbers, and the prime numbers are two and three, because any pair of consecutive numbers has one odd and one even number, and two is the only even prime number, because all other even numbers can be divided by two, and the only pairs of consecutive numbers are one and two and three, but one is not prime because it only has one factor, thus making the only consecutive pair of primes two and three. But the problem asks for the product of the two numbers, not the numbers themselves, so just multiply two and three together to get a final result of six.


The prime numbers 2 and 3 are consecutive primes since one follows the other are there any of consecutive primes?

2 and 3 are the only consecutive primes.


What number has the greatest common factor of one?

Any set of prime or relatively prime numbers, like consecutive integers.


Is there any relationship between two consecutive prime numbers?

None that mathematicians have been able to discern.


How many pairs of prime numbers are there which are consecutive odd integers?

There are an infinite number of prime numbers which are consecutive odd integers. Choose any natural number n. Take all primes up to any number n, take their product, and add 1 and subtract 1 from it. These 2 numbers are consecutive odd integers. eg 2*3*5*7 = 210 209 and 211 are primes which are consecutive odd integers.
