No, the product of 2 prime numbers is not always even. If one of the prime numbers is 2, then the product will be even. However, if both prime numbers are odd, then the product will be odd.

No.

Not always true because 2 times 13 = 26 which is an even number

The product of two odd numbers is always odd.

Not quite true . . . the number '2' is a prime number. All the rest of the even numbers cannot be prime because they always can be divided by 2.

Two is even and it's a prime number. All other even numbers can never be prime though because they will always be divisible by 2. So in fact, not all prime numbers are odd, but 2 is the only even prime number.

Without knowing what the product is, it will be difficult to help. Presumably, you can tell the difference between even and odd numbers. If you are trying to predict, the product of two evens is even, the product of two odds is odd and the product of an even and an odd is even.

Yes, it is. Any whole number times an even number will be even. This is because whole numbers can be represented as the product of their prime factors. Every even number contains 2 as a prime factor (thereby excluding all even numbers above 2 from being prime.) Additionally, the product of any two numbers is equal to the product of their prime factors. This means that the result of multiplying an even number by a whole number will always have a prime factor of 2, making it an even number.

No, the product will always be even.

No, as 2 is a prime number, the product of 2 prime numbers can be even But all other prime numbers (except 2) are odd then their product is odd (2 x n1+1) x (2 x n2+1) = 2 x (2 x n1 x n2 + n1+ n2) +1

There are an infinite amount of such numbers.

No. Since 2 is a prime and any number multiplied by an even is even, the product of all primes must be even.

The product of two odd numbers is always odd.

Not quite.When two prime numbers of 3 and higher are added together, the result is always even, because all such prime numbers are odd numbers, and when two odd numbers are added together, the result is always an even number.However 2 is a prime number, and 2 is also an even number. Adding 2 (an even number) to a different prime number (an odd number) will always yield an odd number.Only if you don't include "2".

In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers.For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime.

No. Two numbers are relatively prime if they have no prime factors in common. Two even numbers will have 2 as a prime factor in common.
