### How should 49 be written?

Numbers 10 and less can be written numerically, e.g. 5 is written as 5. Numbers greater than 10 should be spelled out so 49 should be written as forty-nine.

### What composite numbers are not the sum of two prime numbers?

In 1741 Christian Goldbach conjectured that every even number could be written as a sum of two primes. [At the time 1 was considered a prime and so 2 = 1 + 1.] The conjecture has not been proven so there may be even numbers which cannot be so written. Also every number which is greater than 5 and is one fewer than a multiple of 6 cannot be so written.

No.

### Which is greater 5 hundredths or 5 thousandths both in decimal?

5 hundredths is greater. Whether the numbers are written as decimals or fractions, or in some other base is totally irrelevant.

### What was the name of the most famous book written by the mathematician Euclid?

### Can every number be written as the sum of two prime numbers?

No. 2 is even and cannot be written as a sum of 2 prime numbers.For even numbers greater than 2, this is the Goldbach conjecture, one of the best known conjectures. It has been shown to hold true up to 4*10^18 but has not been proved.
