137 and 11 are two prime numbers that add up to 148.

It is 162.

53 and 3 are two prime numbers that add up to 56

How about: 101+23 = 124

All of the prime numbers (except 2) are odd. The sum of any two prime numbers (except 2) will be even. Unless 245 is a prime number (it isn't) your question does not have a solution.

No, as all prime numbers are odd, excluding 2, and when you add two odd numbers you get an even number. This even number can't be a prime number as it will be divisible by 2. 101 and 31 are both prime, but 101+31 is 132.

There is no pair of prime numbers which sum to 101. Proof : 101 is an odd number two odd numbers always sum to an even number to arrive at 101 we need one odd and one even the only even prime is 2. the only possible pair is thus 2 and 99. but, 99 is not prime - it factors to 3, 3, 11.

101 is a prime number.

You can get another prime (only if one of the numbers added is 2), for example, 101 + 2 = 103. If you add together two odd prime numbers, you will get an even number, which will not be a prime number. (An even number is a number that is divisible by 2; if such a number is greater than 2, it is not a prime number.)

Two: 1 and 101 (101 is a prime number).

No two prime numbers can add to 119.

There are no two prime numbers that can be multiplied to get 202.

They are: 101 and 103

101 and 103

137 and 11 are two prime numbers that add up to 148.

No two prime numbers satisfy that request.

Twin primes are two numbers with have a difference of 2 and that are both prime so 101 twin number is 103
