All of the prime numbers are odd except for two.

All prime numbers are odd except for the number 2.

All prime numbers - except 2 - are odd.

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

All prime numbers are odd except for 2 which is the only even prime number

Yes, every prime number, except for the number 2, is odd.

Yes.

All of them are except 2 which is even

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite. Not all odd numbers are prime.

All even numbers except 2 are divisible and thus not prime. There is no such number for odd numbers, and there is in fact just one even prime and infinitely many odd primes.

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.

odd and prime are two different things ,but odd numbers can be prime or composite just depends if you can multiply it with another number except 1 here's an example 7 ( 7 is odd and is prime because it has 2 factors "7 & 1" 15 is odd ,but not prime because 5x3 is 15 and 15x1 is 15 5 and 3 are factors of 15 so all odd numbers are not prime all even numbers are composite except the number 2.

No, all prime numbers except the number 2 are odd numbers. 570 is an even number so it can't be a prime.

Yes, because all even numbers are divisible by 2

There is an infinite amount of prime numbers all of which are odd numbers

No. 9 is not prime.

No, because 2 is prime. Otherwise the product of two odds is odd, and all primes are odd except 2.

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