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.

Q: Can 3 consecutive whole numbers be prime?

Write your answer...

2 and 3.

The only two consecutive whole numbers that are prime numbers are 2 and 3. Otherwise, every second consecutive whole number in sequence is even, and being multiples of 2, they cannot be prime.

Yes, 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.

2 and 3 are prime numbers.

No. Because 2 are consecutive to 3.

In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.

2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.

The numbers 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers. Are there other pairs of prime numbers which are consecutive numbers?

The only consecutive prime numbers are 2 and 3.

2 and 3 are consecutive numbers that are prime.

2 and 3 are consecutive numbers and they are both prime.

2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.

2 and 3 are the only example of consecutive prime numbers.

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.

3, 5 and 7 are consecutive odd prime numbers.

The three consecutive odd prime numbers are 3, 5, and 7.

No whole 3 consecutive numbers total 46.

There are only two prime numbers that are consecutive numbers, 2 and 3. Their product is 2 x 3 = 6. The first prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, and 7 and the only two consecutive prime numbers whose product is a single digit are 2 and 3. (The next two consecutive prime numbers, 3 and 5, have a two-digit product.)

2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.

2 and 3 are the only consecutive numbers that are prime.

2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.
