Relationship with other odd numbers

The numbers before

  • The previous odd number, 51, is not a prime number. It can be factored into 3 x 17.
  • The odd number previous to 51 is 49. 49 is not a prime number. It is the square number, being 72 = 49.
  • The odd number previous to 49 is 47. 47 is a prime number.
    • 47 and 53 are six numbers apart; therefore, they are sexy primes.

The numbers after

  • The next odd number, 55, is not a prime number. It is divisible by 5 and 11.
  • 57, the odd number following 55, is also not a prime number. It is divisible by 3 and 19.
  • 59, the odd number following 57, is a prime number.
    • 53 and 59 are six numbers apart; therefore, they are sexy primes.
