No, there are no other even prime numbers. And an odd number + or - 3 is always even Ward

No.

Just the number 2. #2 is even and prime.

NO. 2 is the only even prime number.

All even numbers have 2 as a factor, but no odd numbers do. The only even number that will appear as a factor in prime factorizations is 2, because it is the only even prime number. Thus, an odd number will not have even numbers in its prime factorization because an odd number is not evenly divisible by 2. The only even numbers that could appear in the exponential form are the exponents. For example 81 is 34. The factor is an odd number - 3, while the exponent is an even number - 4.

Prime numbers can ONLY be divided (without a remainder) by themselves and the number 1. No even number can ever be a prime number. The number 10 is an even number and can be divided by 5 (10/5=2) and 2 (10/2=5)

What! Even numbers never equal an odd number. Not ever!

No. The sum of two odd numbers is always even, and no prime is even (apart from 2, but it is the lowest prime, so no primes can be added to form it).

There is one even prime number and that is 2 but otherwise no because if it is and even number then it will be able to divide by 2 as well as 1 and itself

No. For two integers to have a difference of 3, one must be odd and one must be even. The only even prime number is 2. That means the only pairs of prime numbers that have a difference of 3 must be 2 and another number. The only numbers that could have a difference of 3 are -1 and 5. Since -1 is not a prime number, that is not a pair that meets this description. Since 5 is a prime number, the pair of 2 and 5 is the only possible pair of prime numbers that can have a difference of 3.

4500 is not a prime number. In fact it has many numbers other than itself and 1 that divide into it. such as 450, 10, 50, 100, 25, 5, 2, etc-----------------------------------------------------------No even number can ever be a prime as it is divisible by 2.

No. Odd numbers don't have even factors.

A prime number has exactly two factors, 1 and the number itself. 1 is not a prime number, and the product will be a composite number if any other prime is used as a factor and multiplied by another prime.

No. If you multiply two prime numbers, any prime numbers, the result will - by definition - not be a prime number. For example, if you multiply 2 x 3, the result will obviously be divisible by 2 and by 3, and therefore, not be a prime number. By the way, one is not usually considered a prime number.

No.

How can 2 prime numbers ever be equal They cant be Equal.

No.

No one has ever discovered the mathematical pattern for prime numbers and all that is known about them is that each prime number has only 2 factors which are itself and one.

No. Odd numbers don't have even factors.

No because all of a prime numbers factors are 1 and itself. therefore it cannot have composite factors

There are no two "last" composite numbers. Just as with prime numbers, and all numbers, they go on for ever and ever and ever and ever ... ... .

There is no such thing as a largest number - odd or even - because numbers go on for ever.

In every math problem you can ever do you can use prime numbers. 1+3 Both prime numbers. Most numbers are not prime but prime numbers only become a broblem when you try to factor them like in simple algebra.

Absolutely !.. Any prime number only has itself and 1 as its factors.

If p is a prime number other than 2, then p must be odd (otherwise it would be divisible by 2). It follows that p+3 must then be even and so cannot be prime.
