Q: Can three consecutive whole numbers all be prime?

Write your answer...

No.

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.

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.

2 and 3.

Consecutive whole numbers will have an odd sum. Consecutive odd numbers, or consecutive prime numbers, will be 29 and 31.

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.

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.

Yes, 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.

2 and 3 are 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.

yes

No. Because 2 are consecutive to 3.

There is no set of three consecutive whole numbers that add up to 154.

no

4 and 9 Any consecutive whole numbers.

There are no such whole numbers. The sum of three consecutive whole numbers must be a multiple of 3; as 68 is not a multiple of 3 (68 = 3 × 22 2/3) it cannot be the sum of three whole numbers.

-3, -2 and -1.

The sum of 3 consecutive whole numbers is always equal to 3 times the middle number in that sequence.

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.

The numbers are 30, 31 and 32.

The three consecutive whole numbers you are looking for are 1, 2, and 3. The sum of the first two numbers, 1 + 2 = 3.

For this to be possible with whole numbers, 175 has to be a multiple of three. It's not, it isn't.

The numbers are 9, 11 and 13.

Consecutive whole numbers have no other whole numbers between them.

The average of 33 consecutive whole numbers is 58, what is the smallest of these whole numbers? The answer is 42
