What is the largest Twin Primes of this form you can get? Ver 3The generalized twin prime can be formulated as follows: or Where all Pn are consecutive primes and Ps is the resulting primes. Example: For P1=5, there would be no twin prime existed For P1=7 , could be the only solution and as P1>7, there is no twin prime numbers could be formed (A conjecture).

Re: What is the largest Twin Primes of this form you can get? Ver 3I think I had to retract the conjecture as there are many counterexamples: However, once P1 becomes larger, this type of prime would become hard to find or simply nonexist.

Re: What is the largest Twin Primes of this form you can get? Ver 3Were you just guessing that there are no twin primes for P1=5, cause it is a good one and a true one!

Re: What is the largest Twin Primes of this form you can get? Ver 3I just knew there is no solution as the multiplication got bigger, if there is a solution for primes, they usually occur at the smaller amount. It is interesting to know that there is no solution for 3n+1 but proving it would be a headache..I guess. How do you know it? You guessed?
