The sum of the first 25 prime numbers is 1,060.

2 + 23 = 25

The sum of the 25 primes less than 100 is even (it is 1060).The first prime number is 2. Every other prime number is odd.So, of the 25 primes less than 100, one is even and 24 are odd.Any two odd numbers sum to an even number. Therefore, an even number of odd numbers has an even sum. So the sum of 24 odd numbers is even.Therefore, the sum of the 25 primes less than 100 is even.

The sum of prime numbers between 1 and 25 is 100. 2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 +13 +17 + 19 + 23 = 100

No.Consider that every prime number except 2 is an odd number.Consider also that the sum of two odd numbers is always an even number.Thus, the only case in which an odd number can be expressed as the sum of two primes is when it is 2 greater than a prime number, since it can take advantage of the only even prime number, 2.For example, 21 can be expressed as 2+19, both of which are primes. However, 27 has no such two primes, since 25 is not prime (5x5=25).

Not true. 12 + 22 = 1 + 4 = 5 which is a prime. Or 42 + 52 = 16 + 25 = 41, also a prime.

They are: 23+2 = 25

No two odd numbers can sum to 7.

The numbers are 13 and 12
