Is there an even number which can be written as the sum of four odd primes?

Prime numbers can only be odd, otherwise they'd be divisible by two, and thus not prime. But, as an example: 1 x 3 x 5 x 7= 105. (odd) An odd times an odd is always odd. Since primes are by definition odd, one cannot multiply four prime numbers and get anything other than an odd number, as each step produces an odd number. Thus a multiplicative sum of four primes is always odd. If by a sum you actually mean addition, then anytime you add two odd numbeers you get an even number, so any four prime numbers will give you an even result every time, and one answer is above. I assume you are only dealing with real numbers.Another Answer:Except for the number 2, which is even and prime, all prime numbers are odd. The sum of any two odd numbers is even, and the sum of any two even numbers is even, so the sum of any four odd numbers is also even. There are an infinite number of even numbers that can be written as the sum of four odd prime numbers. The first example is 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 which equals 26 or, in the full case, 3 + 3+ 3 + 3 which equals 18.
