# 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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Small distinction. They are the only two consecutive numbers that are prime. 5 and 7, 7 and 11, 11 and 13 and so on are consecutive primes.

The only numbers that are consecutive and prime (ie. they are counting numbers greater than 1 that follow each other and can only be divided by themselves and 1) are;23

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

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

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.
