All prime numbers are odd numbers. If one were even, it would be divisible by two and would, therefore, not be prime.

Some odd numbers can be written as the sum of prime numbers. 2 + 3 = 5

No. All prime numbers except for the number 2 are odd. However, most odd numbers are composite numbers. All even numbers greater than 2 are composite numbers. So, prime numbers do not need to be odd, since one prime number is even. Also, composite numbers do not need to be even.Here are some composite odd numbers:9 = 3 x 333 = 3 x 1175 = 5 x 15

All prime numbers are odd, exept of the first prime number 2.

There are more odd numbers than prime numbers.

Infinite. All prime numbers are odd with the exception of 2. Prime numbers are only divisible by 1 and themselves. That's the rule. The only prime number that is even is 2 since all other even numbers are divisible by 2 also. Hence all prime numbers are odd with the exception of 2.

Odd. The only prime number that is even is two. Since there are many prime numbers that are odd (such as 3, 5, etc.), there are more odd prime numbers than even.

While all prime numbers are odd (except 2), not all odd numbers are prime. 9 for example is an odd number, but you can get it by multiplying 3X3, so it is not prime. Odd numbers are numbers that are not divisible by 2. Prime numbers are numbers that cannot be generated by multiplying 2 whole numbers besides 1 and itself.

All prime numbers are odd except for the number 2.

Yes. Apart from 2, all prime numbers are odd.
