Product of 2 prime numbers is equal to product of 2 other prime numbers?

No, the product of two prime numbers is unique.


What are the prime and even numbers?

The only even number that is prime is 2. No other even numbers can be prime because 2 is a factor of them. Prime numbers can have only two factors: 1 and itself.


What are the numbers as sum of 2 prime numbers?

The sum of two prime numbers greater than 2 is an even number. The sum of 2 and any other prime number is an odd number.


What are the 10 two digit prime numbers that are the sum of two prime numbers?

For a 2-digit prime number (which are all odd) to be the sum of two prime numbers, one of the prime numbers will have to be 2. That means the difference between the sum and the other addend will have to be 2. Prime numbers that differ by 2 are called twin primes. There are six pairs of 2-digit twin primes. Your numbers are 13, 19, 31, 43, 61 and 73.


Other than 2 and 3 can two consecutive whole numbers be prime numbers?

no


Can two consecutive numbers be prime?

Yes.Additional Information:If you have two consecutive numbers, one of them will be an odd number and the other will be an even number. Since even numbers are divisible by 2, the only even prime number is 2. If two consecutive numbers are prime, the even number must be 2. So, because 1 is not a prime number, the only time that two consecutive numbers can be prime is in the case of 2 and 3.


What two prime numbers multiplied equal 34?

2 and 17

What two prime numbers equals 125?

The difference when subtracting the prime number 2 from the prime number 127 is 125. No other two prime numbers added together or subtracted from each other have a sum or difference of 125. All primes except the number 2 are odd numbers, and two odd numbers added together or subtracted will always produce an even sum or difference.


Is the number of two prime numbers prime?

Combining prime numbers other than 2, whether through addition or multiplication, will result in a composite number.


Is it possible for the sum or product of two prime numbers be a prime?

It is impossible for the product of two prime numbers to be prime. It is impossible for the sum of two prime numbers to be prime as long as one of the numbers isn't 2.


What two prime numbers added together makes an odd number?

2, and any other prime number (not 2).


Is the product of 2 numbers a prime number?

Discounting the exception where the two numbers are 1 and some prime, products of two numbers will not result in a prime number. That results because that result, whatever it might be, will be divisible by 2, in addition to 1 and itself. And as it's divisible by two it's not a prime. So, no, in general a product of two numbers will not be a prime result. ANS.


Is two the only prime number?

no. 2 is the only even prime number. Prime numbers are numbers that only have two factors; one and itself. E.g. The number 7 only has two factors- 1x7=7. 2 is a factor of all even numbers, therefore no other even numbers are prime. They are composite. 2, however, is a prime number, as it's only factors are itself (2) and 1.


Is it possible for the product of two prime numbers to be odd?

More than possible. Unless one of your prime numbers is 2, the product of any other two will be odd.


How do you know that 2 and 3 are the only conseqtive prime numbers?

All the other prime numbers are odd. Every other pair of odd numbers has at least one even number between them. Even numbers greater than two are not prime.


What is relativly prime?

Relatively prime is when two numbers have no common factors other than 1. 9 and 4 are two such numbers: 9: 3 x 3 4: 2 x 2


The LCM of 2 prime numbers is 90 Their sum is 23?

There aren't two prime numbers whose LCM is 90.There aren't two prime numbers whose total is 23.Other than that...The two numbers you are looking for are 5 and 18, but only one of them is prime.


What 2 prime numbers equal 469?

Other than the number 2, all other prime numbers are odd. As 469 is odd then it must be formed by the addition of an even number (2) and an odd number (467). The two prime numbers are thus 2 and 467.


What are two prime numbers whose sum is also prime?

2 + 3 = 5 2 + 5 = 7 2+ 11 = 13 2 + 41 = 43 The numbers only work with 2 because adding odd numbers together equals an even number. 2 is the only even prime number and thus adding any other prime numbers together will not equal a prime.


What one-digit number is the product of two consecutive prime numbers?

There are only two prime numbers that are consecutive numbers, 2 and 3. Their product is 2 x 3 = 6. The first prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, and 7 and the only two consecutive prime numbers whose product is a single digit are 2 and 3. (The next two consecutive prime numbers, 3 and 5, have a two-digit product.)


Can 2 prime numbers equal 25?

For two numbers to equal an odd number, you need one to be even and the other odd. In this case, we want both to be prime. The only even prime number is 2. Therefore, the other number must be 23. This is prime, and so yes, 2 prime numbers can equal 25, however 2 and 23 are the only possible pair.


When adding 2 prime number will the answer be prime?

The sum of any two prime numbers may or may not be prime. The sum of the two prime numbers 2 and 3 is the prime number 5, and the sum of the two prime numbers 5 and 7 is the composite number 12.


Why can't all even numbers other than 2 be prime?

Because all other even numbers after two can be divisible by itself, two and one.
