let n=2*p1*p2*......*pi+1 and m=2*p1*p2*......*pi1 where pj's for j=1,2,......,i are consecutive odd primes.Twin integers of this form are relatively prime "(m,n)=1" examples (5,7),(29,31),(199,211).................Are there infinitely twin primes of this form?Help.A solution approving this is a solution to twin prime conjector.

Hello ogajajames, As far as I know, existence infinite twin primes isn´t proven yet. See Polignac's conjecture, Why did you post the topic twice? Hoempa

I thought knowing the formation of such numbers could make it a bit easier to proof.Truly it's more harder,I have seen.polignac's conjecture is more interesting I did'nt know about it.My posting of the same message twice was a mistake which I don't wish to repeat,sorry.Thank you.

It's good that you're thinking about it, and even better that you can back off from an idea that doesn't work. Good luck!
