There are not three prime numbers that have the sum of 3. The smallest prime number is 2. If all three prime numbers were 2, the sum would 2 + 2 + 2 = 6, so that is the smallest number that is the sum of three prime numbers.

It is simply: 3+23 = 26 because 3 and 23 are prime numbers

23 and 29. 23+29= 52 29 -23= 6 Ta da!

If you multiply two prime numbers, the product (result) will be a composite number, not a prime number. A prime number has exactly two factors, 1 and itself. The product of two prime numbers will have those two numbers as factors, as well. The sum of two prime numbers might be prime if one of those two numbers is 2, the only even prime number, but otherwise it will not be a prime because two odd numbers will have an even sum, which means it is divisible by 2. Examples: 2 + 3 = 5 (prime) 3 + 7 = 10 (not prime) 13 + 17 = 30 (not prime) If you multiply two prime numbers, the sum of the digits of the product might or might not be prime. Examples: 2 x 7 = 14, sum of digits is 5 (prime) 2 x 11 = 22, sum of digits is 4 (not prime) 3 x 5 = 15, sum of digits is 6 (not prime) 3 x 7 = 21, sum of digits is 3 (prime) 5 x 7 = 35, sum of digits is 8 (prime)

Yes.The sum of any six prime numbers, excluding 2, will be even. So the sum will be composite.

The sum first Prime number is (2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 ) = 129 The sum of the first composite numbers is (4 + 6 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 12 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 18) = 112 The difference is 129 - 112 = 17 !!!!!
