Kissing Cousins (Posted on 2017-03-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5

Let P be prime, such that
(i) P is a sum of two consecutive squares, and
(ii) Q = (P+4) is also prime.

Prove that Q is a sum of two squares of numbers differing by 3.

Claim: the number of such 'Kissing Cousin' prime pairs is finite - true or false?
