### Are there more mersenne primes known as there are perfect numbers?

There is a one-to-one relationship between even perfect numbers and Mersenne primes. It is unknown whether there are any odd perfect numbers.

### Is there a pattern in the prime and composite numbers between 1 to 100?

There are some patterns, but none that can help you determine, in all cases, whether the number is a prime or not.For example: * All primes except 2 are odd numbers. However, not all odd numbers are primes. * All primes greater than 3 are of the form 6n - 1, or 6n + 1. However, not all numbers of this form are primes.

### How many even primes are there in 1 to 100?

Answer: 1, and that is 2?Answer: The only even prime number - nont only between 1 and 100, but among all the prmes - is 2. All higher even numbers are divisible by 2, and therefore not primes.

### How many of the prime numbers between 10 and 20 can be written as the sum of two primes?

All prime numbers greater than 2 are odd numbers. For an odd prime to be written as the sum of two primes, one of the primes must be 2 because two odd primes will produce an even sum. 11 cannot be written as the sum of two primes. 13 = 2 + 11. 17 cannot be written as the sum of two primes. 19 = 2 + 17.

### Do twin primes have one composite number between them?

No, twin primes are pairs of prime numbers that have only one number between them which is a composite number. For example, (3, 5) and (11, 13) are twin prime pairs with the composite number 4 and 12 respectively between them.

### What is the longest number string that only consists of prime numbers?

The longest string of consecutive numbers that are primes is two digits long, consisting of 2 and 3 only. There are no other consecutive numbers that are primes because no even numbers greater than 2 are primes.

### Why is 2 and 3 the only consecutive prime numbers?

Because every other set of primes has at least one even number between them.

### Is the sum of two primes even?

Yes. all prime numbers are odd numbers so the sum of any two will be an even number.

### What is the even prime numbers of 50?

2 is the only even prime number. All primes other than 2 are odd numbers.

### Is 78 prime or composite?

Composite. Even numbers higher than 2 are not Primes.

### Are prime numbers perdictible?

'Perdictible?' I think you mean 'Predictable', please check you spelling. The answer is NO!!!!! However, with the exception of '2', and even number, ALL larger prime numbers are 'Odd'. So all even numbers larger than '2' are compound numbers, and therefore not primes. All odd numbers ending in '5' are also compound numbers, divisible by '5' and therefore not prime numbers. This leaves all numbers ending in 1,3,7. &amp; 9 as possible prime numbers. Here are the primes up to '100' ; not a prime. 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53,59,61,67,71,73,79,83,89,91,97. The differences between these primes are either 2,4,or 6. However, there is a lot of research going on to found to find a predictable formula for primes.

### There are 25 prime numbers less than 100 is their sum even or odd?

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.
