Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Except for the first term, concatenated twin primes are always divisible by 3. This follows from the fact that twin prime components > 3 are of the form 6k-1 and 6k+1. So concatenation in decimal is (6k-1)*10^d + 6k+1 = 6k(10^d+1)+(10^d-1) where d is the number of digits in each twin prime component. Now 10^d-1 = (10-1)(10^(d-1)+10^(d-2)+...+1) = 9h and 6k(10^d+1) + 9h is divided by 3.

EXAMPLE

The first concatenated twin prime pair in decimal representation is 35.

The quotient of 35/3 is 11 which is prime and the first term.
