PRIME NUMBERS
Prime numbers have captured the hearts of
many mathematicians for centuries. During 18th century, mathematician
Christian Goldbach (16901764) wrote to
Leonhard Euler that he believed it could be
shown that every even integer greater than 2 is the sum of 2 primes.
For example, 30 = 23+7 and 36 = 13+23. Until now, this
conjecture has neither been proved or disproved.
