Greater than one, numbers are either composite or prime, never both.

The list is far too long to list here (millions of them); a search on "list of prime numbers" can quickly give you the desired prime numbers.

Actually 2x2x5x7x11 is a prime factorization and on multiplying these numbers we get 1540. Prime factorization of a number is the prime numbers which on multiplying together give that number.

Okay. Give us a pair of numbers.

Six twos.

There 4 pairs of primes that can give a sum 40 in addition. They are (3,37), (11,29), (17,23),(19,21).

The prime numbers 2 and 3.

There are four factor pairs of 40 totaling 13, 14, 22 and 41, none that total 18.

Square numbers can't be prime. They have too many factors.

2 and 3

There is no solution. For two numbers to add to an odd total, one of them must be even. If that number is also a prime it must be 2. But if one of the numbers is 2 and the two sum to 289, the other must be 287. But 287 is not a prime and the question required two primes to be added.

The prime factorization for 18 is: 2 x 9 2 x 3 x 3, so the two prime numbers that give you 18 are 2 and 3.

5 and 3 are two prime numbers which on adding give 8.

Two numbers, like 4 and 9, are considered co-prime if their GCF is 1.
