# Is 2 a consecutive prime number?

###### Wiki User

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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 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.

The only consecutive prime numbers are 2 and 3.

2 and 3 are consecutive numbers that are prime.

A prime number is a number only divisible by 1 and itself, since nothing else goes into 2 but 1 and 2 and nothing goes into 3 but 1 and 3 they are both prime and since 3 goes after 2 they are consecutiveAnd 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.1 is not a prime so that (1,2) is not a pair of consecutive integers that are prime. So, if there is another opair of consecutive numbers that are prime, they must be larger than (2,3) - ie the smaller of the pair must be greater than 2.Now any pair of consecutive numbers must have one odd and one even number. Therefore, the candidate pair must contain an even number which is greater than 2. But all even numbers greater than 2 are divisible by 2 and so are composite (non-prime). So every such candidate pair contains an odd number which may or may not be prime, and an even number which is definitely not a prime.

Because any consecutive pair of numbers would involve an even number which will always be divisible by 2. As 2 is the only even prime number, 2 and 3 are necessarily the only sequential prime numbers.

The number 2 is the only even prime number - all other even numbers are divisible by 2.

2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.

2 and 3 are the only example of consecutive prime numbers.

Ah hah! You didn't say so, but you must be talking about 2 and 3 ... the only two consecutive numbers that are both prime numbers. There can't be any others. Because if you have any other two consecutive numbers, one of them has to be an even number ... divisible by 2. Since that number is divisible by 2, it's not a prime number.

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.

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.)
