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.


Can every whole number greater than one be written as the sum of two prime numbers?

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.

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.

It can't be one. Mixed numbers are greater than one.
