COMMENTS

Except for the first term, concatenated twin primes reversed are always divisible by 3. This follows from the fact that twin prime components > 3 in reverse 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 reverse is 53. The quotient of 53/3 is 17 which is the first term.
