When you multiply two prime numbers together they become factors of the number that they equal. Since the number will have factors other than 1 and itself, the number cannot be prime.

19 and 11 are the two prime numbers that equal to 209.

No two prime numbers satisfy that request.

For two numbers to equal an odd number, you need one to be even and the other odd. In this case, we want both to be prime. The only even prime number is 2. Therefore, the other number must be 23. This is prime, and so yes, 2 prime numbers can equal 25, however 2 and 23 are the only possible pair.

There are two prime numbers that equals 50. The two numbers are 13 & 37. Both numbers are prime, so that's the answer.

If one of the two numbers is 2, the sum of two prime numbers may sometimes be a prime number. Examples of this are 2 + 11 = 13, 2 + 521 = 523, 2 + 281 = 283. There are an infinite number of similar examples where the sum of 2 plus a prime is another prime. However if neither number is 2, then the sum of two prime numbers is always an even number greater than 2 and therefore composite.
