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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
