Prove that the number between two twin primes can be divided by 6.

3 Answers

if you are strong in math, try this company. but they are ridiculous because with that strong math skills, you can go to Wall street.

this is not a hard question. we just have to prove that a number between two twin primes is divisible by 2 and 3. twin primes are primes whose difference is two, such as 41 and 43. It is clear that 2 is a divisor because otherwise, the two neighboring numbers would be even and therefore not prime. It is also clear that 3 is a divisor, since for every three consecutive number there is exactly one number divisible by 3, and we know that the neighbors are prime and therefore not divisible. Therefore the number in between must be divisible by 3.

I see that this question is quite old but I wanted to make a small correction. This claim is actually false as stated; this may be proven by a simple counterexample utilizing the smallest pair of twin primes {3, 5} which surround the number 4. Your proof falls apart simply because 3 is a twin prime itself, thus excluding this edge case your proof holds because no prime except 3 may be divisible by 3.
