Best Answer

Almost all prime numbers are odd. The number 2 is an exception, it is the only even Prime number. Prime numbers are numbers which are evenly divisible only by themselves, and the number 1. Which is to say, they have no factors. So when factoring a number, the smallest factors are prime numbers. Any numbers that are not prime have factors.

Prime number: A whole number only divisible by itself and 1.

Odd number: A whole number that does not have a factor that is 2.

With exception of the number 2, all prime numbers are odd. However, not all odd numbers are prime.

All prime numbers are odd with the only exception of the prime number 2. However, not all odd numbers are prime.

All prime numbers are odd, exept of the first prime number 2.

Odd. The only prime number that is even is two. Since there are many prime numbers that are odd (such as 3, 5, etc.), there are more odd prime numbers than even.

While all prime numbers are odd (except 2), not all odd numbers are prime. 9 for example is an odd number, but you can get it by multiplying 3X3, so it is not prime. Odd numbers are numbers that are not divisible by 2. Prime numbers are numbers that cannot be generated by multiplying 2 whole numbers besides 1 and itself.

The question, "the" three odd prime numbers, is wrong. There are much more than three odd prime numbers - in fact, infinitely many. There are infinitely many prime numbers, and all except the number 2 are odd.

There are more odd numbers than prime numbers.

This is because they are only two factors in that number. It may seem to you that all prime numbers odd, but it is not true. Most of them however, are prime numbers. This is why most of the odd numbers are prime numbers.

They are odd numbers that do not include prime numbers.

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.

All prime numbers are odd except for the number 2.

No, odd numbers such as 9, 15, 21, and 27 are not prime.

Yes. Apart from 2, all prime numbers are odd.

All prime numbers are odd numbers. If one were even, it would be divisible by two and would, therefore, not be prime.

Prime numbers are whole numbers that are not divisible by anything but one and itself. Examples of prime numbers include 1;2;3;5;7;9... etc. Prime numbers must always be odd (except for 2) but not all odd numbers are prime. For example, 21 is odd, but it is divisible by 3 and 7. Therefore, it is not prime.

All prime numbers - except 2 - are odd.

Prime numbers.

All of the prime numbers are odd except for two.

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

Prime numbers are integers that are not divisible by anything except one and themselves. All prime numbers (excepting two) are odd.

No. 9 is not prime.

No. Odd numbers can be greater than, smaller than, or equal to prime numbers.

Odd

Some odd numbers can be written as the sum of prime numbers. 2 + 3 = 5
