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.

What are four consecutive numbers that add up to 35?

There are no four consecutive whole numbers that add up to 35. The sum of two consecutive [whole] numbers is an even number plus an odd number which is an odd number. The sum of two consecutive numbers and the two next consecutive numbers is the sum of two odd numbers which is even, but 35 is odd, so no four consecutive whole numbers cannot add up to 35.

Can two consecutive numbers be prime?

Yes.Additional Information:If you have two consecutive numbers, one of them will be an odd number and the other will be an even number. Since even numbers are divisible by 2, the only even prime number is 2. If two consecutive numbers are prime, the even number must be 2. So, because 1 is not a prime number, the only time that two consecutive numbers can be prime is in the case of 2 and 3.

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.
