Check whether given three numbers are adjacent primes in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have three numbers and we have to check whether they are adjacent primes are not. The adjacent primes are prime numbers where no other prime is present between them.

So, if the input is like nums = [5,7,11], then the output will be True.

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

  • if any one of these three numbers is not prime them
    • return False
  • if next prime of x is not same as y, then
    • return False
  • if next prime of y is not same as z, then
    • return False
  • return True

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

def isPrime(num):
   if num > 1:
      for i in range(2, num):
         if num % i == 0:
           return False
      return True
   return False
def get_next_prime(num) :
   next_prime = num + 1
   while not isPrime(next_prime):
      next_prime += 1
   return next_prime
def solve(x, y, z) :
   if isPrime(x) == False or isPrime(y) == False or isPrime(z) == False :
      return False
   next_prime = get_next_prime(x)
   if next_prime != y:
      return False
   if get_next_prime(y) != z:
      return False
   return True

nums = [5,7,11]
