EXAMPLE

3 and 5 are twin primes, but 5*3+4 = 19 and 21 are not twin primes.

11 and 13 are twin primes, 5*11+4 = 59 and 61 are twin primes, but 5*59+4 = 299 and 301 are not twin primes.

5 and 7 are twin primes, 5*5+4 = 29 and 31 are twin primes, 5*29+4 = 149 and 151 are twin primes, but 5*149+4 = 749 and 751 are not twin primes.

1720949 and 1720951 are twin primes, 5*1720949+4 = 8604749 and 8604751 are twin primes, 5*8604749+4 = 43023749 and 43023751 are twin primes,

5*8604749+4 = 215118749 and 215118751 are twin primes, 5*1075593749+4 = 1075593749 and 1075593751 are not twin primes.
