You can't write that as the sum of two prime numbers. Note: Goldbach's Conjecture (for expressing numbers as the sum of two prime numbers) applies to EVEN numbers.

The sum of any two prime numbers may or may not be prime. The sum of the two prime numbers 2 and 3 is the prime number 5, and the sum of the two prime numbers 5 and 7 is the composite number 12.

The sum of the two prime numbers 3 and 73 is 76.

I assume you are asking the question "what two prime numbers sum to 44". There may be other pairs of prime numbers that sum to 44, but 37 and 7 are both primes and their sum = 44.

The difference when subtracting the prime number 2 from the prime number 127 is 125. No other two prime numbers added together or subtracted from each other have a sum or difference of 125. All primes except the number 2 are odd numbers, and two odd numbers added together or subtracted will always produce an even sum or difference.
