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.

The question, "the" three odd prime numbers, is wrong. There are much more than three odd prime numbers - in fact, infinitely many. There are infinitely many prime numbers, and all except the number 2 are odd.

All prime numbers are odd except for 2 which is the only even prime number

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.

There are many, many more odd prime numbers than even prime numbers; there is only 1 even prime number, namely 2, whereas the odd prime numbers are 3, 5, 7, 11, ...

All even numbers except 2 are divisible and thus not prime. There is no such number for odd numbers, and there is in fact just one even prime and infinitely many odd primes.

Any prime numbers greater than 2 will be odd numbers. The difference between two odd numbers will be an even number. So, the difference between two prime (and odd) numbers could be 2, 4, or 6, of the numbers given. The difference could not be 3, 5, or 7.

All prime numbers are odd numbers, except for the number 2. The difference between two odd numbers must be a multiple of 2. So, if the difference between two prime numbers is another prime number, that difference must be 2.Examples:{3, 5}{5, 7}{11, 13}{29, 31}
