Using a prime number, multiply it by 2.

Separate it into 2 numbers separated by 10x.

Multiply one of them by 10 and add it to the other no.

You should now have another prime but you may need to divide it by 2 until odd.

Example:

13 X 2 = 26

Split into 23 and 3

3 X 10 = 30 plus 23 =53

23 X 10 = 230 plus 3 = 233

Don't know what happened there then. It worked for all the ones I tried.

Confused about what?
