Project Euler #60

The primes 3, 7, 109, and 673, are quite remarkable.
By taking any two primes and concatenating them in any order
the result will always be prime.
For example, taking 7 and 109, both 7109 and 1097 are prime.
The sum of these four primes, 792, represents the lowest sum
for a set of four primes with this property.

Find the lowest sum for a set of five primes for which any
two primes concatenate to produce another prime.


import time
import itertools as it

ts = time.time()

def is_prime(num):
    if num <= 1: return False
    elif num == 2: return True
    elif num % 2 == 0: return False
        d = 3
        r = int(num**0.5)
        while d <= r:
            if num % d == 0: return False
            d += 2
        return True

def conc_primes(n, m):
    return is_prime(int(str(n) + str(m))) and is_prime(int(str(m) + str(n)))

def prime_pairs(iterable):
    for n, m in it.combinations(iterable, 2):
        if not conc_primes(n, m): return False
    return True

primes = [n for n in xrange(3,10000,2) if is_prime(n)] + [2]

def get_five():
    for n in primes:
        for m in primes[primes.index(n):]:
            if conc_primes(n ,m):
                for x in primes[primes.index(m):]:
                    if prime_pairs([x, n, m]):
                        for y in primes[primes.index(x):]:
                            if prime_pairs([y, x, n, m]):
                                for z in primes[primes.index(y):]:
                                    if prime_pairs([z, y, x, n, m]):
                                        return sum([z, y, x, n, m])

    I comment when I like a post on a website or I have something to add to the conversation.
    It’s a result of the fire communicated in the article I browsed.
    And on this post Project Euler #60 | bancaldo™.
    I was actually excited enough to drop a leave a responsea response 🙂 I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it only me or does it look like like some of the
    comments look like written by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting on other sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to post.

    Would you make a list every one of all your shared sites like
    your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    This site was… how do you say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve found something which
    helped me. Appreciate it!
