No. For example, the square roots of prime numbers cannot be simplified.

They're not. Prime numbers and square numbers are different things.

No.

No.

There are no prime numbers that are square numbers

An oxymoron. Prime numbers can't be square. Square numbers can't be prime. You can square a prime number: 3 x 3 - 32 = 9

Every square number (except 1) is composite. Prime numbers only have two factors, one and the numbers themselves. Since square numbers also have at least the square roots as factors, they have to be composite.

Prime numbers are those numbers which are only divisible by one and itself. For eg 2,3,5,7 ....

Yes as for example: 2+23 = 25 or 2+47 = 49

Absolutely not. A square number has an integer square root, so by definition it has at least one factor. Prime numbers have no factors

No. By definition, the square root would be a factor so the number would not be a prime.

A [perfect] square number, by definition, has a factor which is its square root. As a result it CANNOT be a prime!

Prime numbers are numbers that are only divisible by 2 numbers (one and themselves), for example 13, 17 etc.

No. A prime number is always odd.

Prime numbers only have two factors; square numbers (other than 1) have more than two.

Yes.

2 and 3 are the only example of consecutive prime numbers.

Numbers with more than two factors are not prime numbers
