There is not such a thing as a composite prime number. A prime number has exactly two factors. A composite number has more than two factors.

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 prime number only has two factors. If the number you're looking at has more than two factors, it is not prime.

A pair of prime numbers are always relatively prime, whether they are consecutive or not. This is so because "relatively prime" means they have no common factors.

2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers; therefore, such a concept does exist, but those are the only two consecutive primes. The reason there are not any others: natural numbers alternate between odd and even numbers. When the number is even, then 2 is a factor. The number 2 is the only even prime number (it's only factors are 2 and 1). All other even numbers have factors, in addition to 2 &amp; 1. So if a number is prime, and the number is not 2, then it is an odd number. The two numbers on either side of an odd number are even. So if the prime number is greater than 3, then the two numbers on either side of it will be even numbers, which are not primes.

That's its definition. If it had more than two factors, it wouldn't be a prime number.
