Two sets of numbers:

1) Superset of prime numbers.

2) Subset of composite numbers.

1) The Superset of prime numbers is given by the equation:

P=3x±2

For example, if x=5, p1=17, p2=13.

2) The subset of composite numbers is given by the equation(s):

n=3x±5

For example, if x=5, n1=10, n2=20

Truth value statements: (affirmative statements)
