# Express an even number as a sum of primes

Show that every even natural number grater than $2$ can be expressed as a sum of two prime numbers. No idea how to prove this. Can you help? thanks

Let me know if you find a proof of this. We can publish it together :-). –  user17762 May 2 '13 at 14:55

Tough course you are taking, if this is homework! Solving it would put you on the front pages of newspapers. –  André Nicolas May 2 '13 at 14:59
@AndréNicolas: Some of the conjectures in the past were solved by mistake in the past.(Teachers left them as open problems in home assignments). –  Inceptio May 2 '13 at 15:06
