Except for 2 all other prime numbers are odd. Otherwise, they would be divisible by 2 (and thus not a Prime number). This does NOT mean that all odd numbers are prime, but that all prime numbers (aside from 2) are odd.

No.

No. A prime number is always odd.

Kind of. The only prime number that is even is 2.

Yes, except for the number 2.

Not quite.When two prime numbers of 3 and higher are added together, the result is always even, because all such prime numbers are odd numbers, and when two odd numbers are added together, the result is always an even number.However 2 is a prime number, and 2 is also an even number. Adding 2 (an even number) to a different prime number (an odd number) will always yield an odd number.Only if you don't include "2".

no because 5x3 is 15 and 15 is not a prime number

No, they do not. If one of the prime numbers is 2, you will have an odd number.

3 is the smallest odd prime number.

The lowest odd prime number is 3 .

No. 15 is odd, but not a prime.

Some are. However prime numbers are always odd, with the exception of the number 2.

All prime numbers have only 2 factors which are themselves and one. Al prime numbers are odd numbers except for 2 which is the only even prime number.

All prime numbers are odd except one prime number and that is 2.

No. 2 is a prime number, and any product of 2 and another prime number will be even.

3 is the smallest odd prime number.

NO,2 is the only prime number which is even, so 2 is not a odd prime number.

Prime numbers, except 2, are always odd (they would not be prime if they were even cos they would be divisible by 2.) 1 less than any odd number must be an even number.

Every prime number is odd except one: the number 2.

odd is a number you cant halve a prime number is a number that you can double itself and it is odd

The only prime number which isn't odd is the number 2. As the only things it is divisible by is 2 and 1. Therefore is prime. All other even numbers can be divided by 2, so are not prime.

Yes it can if the result is 2, else it can't because an odd number - an odd number = an even number, and 2 is the only even prime.

There is one even prime number (2); the rest are odd.

The only even prime number is 2, then its successor is 3

No, as all prime numbers are odd, excluding 2, and when you add two odd numbers you get an even number. This even number can't be a prime number as it will be divisible by 2. 101 and 31 are both prime, but 101+31 is 132.

2 is the only prime number that is not an odd number.
