Show that every even integer greater than two can be written as the sum of two primes.Note that they don't have to be distinct and 1 does not count as a prime in this case.Kudos to any of you that solve this problem...Let's say it's a bit of a tough one...

I haven't seen you in a while! The problem you are giving is quite hard indeed! Here's a plot of the number of representations of each even integer as a sum of two primes. It looks very nice! My problem above is easier, rest assured.      Subject: Re: Writing integers as sums of primes   Writing integers as sums of primes Page 1 of 1
