Twin primes

In mathematics, a twin primes is a set of two prime numbers of the form {p, p + 2}. Usually the pair (2, 3) is not considered to be a pair of twin primes. Since 2 is the only even prime, this pair is the only pair of prime numbers that differ by one; thus twin primes are as closely spaced as possible for any other two primes.

Every twin prime pair except (3, 5) is of the form (6n − 1, 6n + 1) for some natural number n; that is, the number between the two primes is a multiple of 6.
