## Main Question or Discussion Point

How can I prove that the sum of two odd primes will never result in a prime?

Would this be proof?:

Proof by contradiction:

The sum of two odd primes will sometimes result in a prime.

This is true because 2 + 3 = 5, which is a prime.

So since this is true, does this proof the situation? Thank you.
