Multiplication is 3 which is prime number.
Difference between 1 & -1 is 2
Difference between -1 & -3 is 2

Difference between 2 and 1 is 1

these are two numbers and what is needed is three numbers........
1=1, so 1 and 1 are not two numbers.....the are one number

....The numbers DO NOT EXIST....
There are NO three numbers which when multiplied give a prime number.
coz, A prime number is a number which is divisible by one and itself, so if you get "this number" means it can be divisible by 1 and the other number.....contrary to its definition...

What about 2, 1 and -1. Multiplication is a prime number but not sure my answer is correct or not...

the product is -2 which is not prime...
remember prime number is a whole number divisible by 1 and itself....negative number is not a whole number............
i would say the numbers are -3, -1, 1 coz product is 3 which is prime(first condition) &
-1--3=1--1=2(second condition)

but -3 is not a number, it reads "negative of number three"......it just means "you don't have number 3 which you need" ......so its like you have a debt of number 3....

if negatives were numbers we wouldn't say a prime  number is divisible by only two numbers...one and itself...
I think -3, -1 and 1 is correct as the multiplication should be prime individual numbers can be anything.
But wonderful finding, will you like to answer the question :)
yes bro, I did

1,2,1
or 1,3,1
1, ( pprime number), 1

Can you think of three numbers that gives a prime number as their product and also the difference between the second and first is equal to the difference between third and second?

Can you find a number such that if we multiply that number by 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6, then the resultant number contains same all digits (of course in a different place)
