Given two positive integer n1 and n2, the task is to check if both are Cousin primes or not. Print ‘YES’ if the both the numbers are Cousin primes otherwise print ‘NO’.
Cousin primes: In Mathematics, Cousin primes are prime numbers that differ by 4. Suppose ‘p’ is a prime number and if ( p + 4) is also a prime number then both the prime numbers will be called as cousin primes.
The Cousin primes below 100 are:
(3, 7), (7, 11), (13, 17), (19, 23), (37, 41), (43, 47), (67, 71), (79, 83), (97, 101)
Input: n1 = 7, n2 = 11 Output: YES Both are prime numbers and they differ by 4. Input: n1 = 5, n2 = 11 Output: NO Both are prime numbers but they differ by 6.
Approach: A Simple Solution is to check if both number are primes and differ by 4 or not. If they are primes and differ by 4 then they will be cousin primes, otherwise not.
Below is the implementation of above approach:
