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.)

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

If you mean consecutive numbers that are prime? than the answer is 2,3 are consecutive numbers which are prime. except for this pair it is impossible for consecutive numbers to be prime because every second number is multiple of 2

Yes, 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.

2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.

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

Yes, 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.

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.
