Maths Homework-prime numbers textbook Pg 8 #24

Yes,I agree to the mathematician as when we add two odd numbers,we get an even number and all prime numbers,except the number 2, are odd numbers.For example:4=2+2 and 2 is a prime number or 14=7+7 and 7 is a prime number.

    That's very good reasoning :D
    On the other hand, by adding pairs of Prime numbers, does that "cover" all the even numbers?

    Check out the Goldbach Conjecture to find out more on what the Mathematician claimed :P
