i have a couple 67+3 59+11 53+17 47+23 41+29

16 = 1+15, 3+13, 5+11, 7+92,3,5,7,11,13 are primes < 1616 = 3+13 or 5+11

Factors are whole numbers that divide exactly into a whole number. These numbers have no remainder. Primes, on the other hand, have exactly two factors which are 1 and itself.

To express the numbers 46 and 38 as the sum of two odd primes, you can use the following combinations: For 46: 46 = 43 (a prime number) + 3 (a prime number) 46 = 41 (a prime number) + 5 (a prime number) For 38: 38 = 37 (a prime number) + 1 (a prime number) 38 = 31 (a prime number) + 7 (a prime number) So, 46 can be expressed as the sum of two odd primes in two ways, and 38 can also be expressed as the sum of two odd primes in two ways.

Goldbach's conjecture says that every even number greater than two can be expressed as the sum of 2 primes. If 30 could not be expressed as the sum of two primes, then this would disprove the conjecture. As it is, 30 can be expressed as the sum of two primes. You can express it as 11+19. Thus, Goldbach's conjecture holds in this case.

Write 92 as the sum of two primes

Given an arbitrary odd natural number greater than five, x, let y = x - 3, then y is an even number greater than 2. By assumption we have that y is the sum of two primes, say y1 and y2, but then x = y1 + y2 + 3 (which is the sum of three primes).

Yes. all prime numbers are odd numbers so the sum of any two will be an even number.

All prime numbers greater than 2 are odd numbers. For an odd prime to be written as the sum of two primes, one of the primes must be 2 because two odd primes will produce an even sum. 11 cannot be written as the sum of two primes. 13 = 2 + 11. 17 cannot be written as the sum of two primes. 19 = 2 + 17.
