There is only one even prime number: 2. So, representing 20 as a sum of even prime numbers would be 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2.

2 + 3 = 5

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.

There is only one prime number and it is '2' You cannot have any other even prime number

The sum of two prime numbers greater than 2 is an even number. The sum of 2 and any other prime number is an odd number.

2 + 3 = 5

Factors for 20 are: 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20 Prime Factors: 2, 5 sum of prime factors = 2 + 5 = 7

There are not three prime numbers that have the sum of 3. The smallest prime number is 2. If all three prime numbers were 2, the sum would 2 + 2 + 2 = 6, so that is the smallest number that is the sum of three prime numbers.

The sum of any two prime numbers may or may not be prime. The sum of the two prime numbers 2 and 3 is the prime number 5, and the sum of the two prime numbers 5 and 7 is the composite number 12.
