### The consecutive numbers 2 and 3 are both prime how do you know that there are no other consecutive prime numbers?

Because one of them would necessarily be even, and therefore divisible by 2.

### What are three consecutive numbers whose sum is 57?

Since 57/3 = 19, we know that the middle number has to be 19. The other numbers will be the numbers contiguous to 19. Therefore, the three consecutive numbers which add up to 57 are: 18 + 19 + 20 = 57

### What are the sum of 3 consecutive whole numbers is 72?

You probably want to know "What are the 3 consecutive whole numbers whose sum is 72 ?" They are 23, 24, and 25.

### Find all pairs of consecutive prime numbers?

The only two consecutive numbers that are both prime are 2 and 3. Since there are no other even prime numbers (other than 2), there are no more pairs of consecutive prime numbers. Therefore, the term "twin primes" usually refers to pairs of prime numbers that are 2 numbers apart. Examples are (3, 5), (5, 7), (11, 13), (101, 103), and many others more. It is not currently know whether there are infinitely many twin primes.

### What are two consecutive numbers whose sum is 4?

### What is symbol the difference of two consecutive odd numbers?

### What are three consecutive even integers whose sum is negative one hundred and eighty-six?

-- method -- We need X numbers which are consecutive, so the middle number will be 1/ X of the total. Divide the sum of the numbers by the number of numbers ... in this case divide 186 by 3. The numbers are to be consecutive and even, so subtract 2 from the number go get one of the numbers and add 2 to the number to get the other number. You now have three numbers which are even and consecutive. Now, place a minus sign in front of them, to turn them into negative numbers For instance 12, 14 and 16 are three consecutive numbers whose sum is 42. -12, -14 and - 16 are three consecutive even integers whose sum is -42 Now you know all you need to solve the problem.

### What is the greatest common factor that the sum of any 3 consecutive counting numbers must possess?

I think I know what you're asking, but it doesn't work like that. The sum of any set of numbers is a single number and single numbers don't have common factors until they are compared to at least one other number. The sum of three consecutive counting numbers will be at least a multiple of 3.

### Why are 2 and 3 the only consecutive prime numbers?

And they are the ONLY consecutive prime numbers because if you have one prime number (i.e. 29), then there always is an even number right after the prime number (i.e. 30 comes right after 29), and consecutive means "right next to," right? And we all know that even numbers can always be divided in half, so 2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.

### Why were roman numbers invented?
