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.

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.

Consecutive prime numbers are 2 integers that differ by 1 and are both prime. Since 2 is the only even prime, 2 and 3 are the only consecutive primes.

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.

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.

A whole number following immediately after another whole number, like 3 follows 2.

17 is the only prime number that is the sum of four consecutive prime numbers. 2 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 17

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

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.

No. You must have more than one number listed in order for them to be considered consecutive 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.

There is no whole number of 2.875 since it is a mixed fraction, expressed in decimal form. The consecutive whole numbers on either side of it are 2 and 3.

Yes 2 &amp; 3 no others because 1 number will always be even and 2 is the only even pime

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

Yes it does, since 1 (an odd whole number) plus another 1 equals 2 (an even whole number). So only 2 plus an odd whole number equals a consecutive odd whole number. 1 plus 2 equals 3. 3 plus 2 equals 5. And so on.

Because any number divisible by 2 is not a prime number, so any even no. is divisible by 2. Thus any number higher than 3 will be divisible by 2. Therefore the only consecutive prime nos. are 1, 2 and 3

The only consecutive prime numbers are 2 and 3.
