289 is an odd number so it must be the sum of an odd and an even number. The only even prime number is 2 so the other number must be 287, which is not prime as it is divisible by 7, so your question has no answer in this universe.

The difference of an odd number and an even number is an odd number.

An even number can be a multiple of an odd number OR an even number. An odd number cannot be a multiple of an even number.

Always odd.

Because the second number from an odd number is odd, and every other number is an odd number. In fact, if you add or subtract an even number with any number, the result keeps the same parity as the other number. So an odd number minus an even number is odd, while an even number minus and even number is even.
