    The Goldbach Conjecture is easy enough to understand: every even number greater than 2 is the sum of two prime numbers.
    Easy to state, fiendishly difficult to prove.

    A lot are referenced in the book :
    "Unsolved problems in number theory", R.K.Gay, Springer Edit.
    Much of them are easy to understand.
