Because the way my admittedly ill-functioning, road-weary brain reads your first sentence, it doesn't seem quite right. 18 ,for example, can also be the sum of 3+3+3+3+3+3. <br /><br />Oh. <br /><br />Not more than 2 diiiiifferent numbers. <br /><br />So how about that number 55? 51 + 3 + 1??? Is 1 not prime? Why do I persist in making a fool of myself here instead of googling this?Deborahhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10892637441668897411noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2478273688536973765.post-88094804487785902872011-09-18T03:12:24.054+01:002011-09-18T03:12:24.054+01:00Doc....

Long, long ago Euclid showed by a process of pure logic that there is no LARGEST prime. The primes are infinite in number. Note also that if you add that 13 million digit prime to itself, you generate another EVEN number, like Dr. Goldbach said!Doctor FTSEhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10052101566471519778noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2478273688536973765.post-7857925564271421362011-09-17T18:54:05.969+01:002011-09-17T18:54:05.969+01:00This statement I've found while reading about ...This statement I've found while reading about C.
