Cousin primes

In mathematics, a cousin primes is a set of two prime numbers of the form {p, p + 4}. Compare this with twin primes, pairs of prime numbers that differ by two, and sexy primes, pairs of prime numbers that differ by six.

The only prime belonging to two pairs of cousin primes is 7. One of the numbers n, n+4, n+8 will always be divisible by 3, so n = 3 is the only case where all three are primes.

First 20: {3, 7}, {7, 11}, {13, 17}, {19, 23}, {37, 41}, {43, 47}, {67, 71}, {79, 83}, {97, 101}, {103, 107}, {109, 113}, {127, 131}, {163, 167}, {193, 197}, {223, 227}, {229, 233}, {277, 281}, {307, 311}, {313, 317}, {349, 353}
