what is the minimum prime number that is the sum of exactly two odd prime numbers?

i.e I want to find a counter example to:

$$p_i+p_j \in \mathbb P \operatorname{iff} i=1 \lor j=1$$

Sum of two odd primes is even, which means that it cannot be a prime > 2.

  • $\begingroup$ @Adam If the people in the chat room had a way to add two odd numbers together to get a third odd number, you should share. I'd love to see it! $\endgroup$ – Morgan Rodgers Oct 13 '18 at 5:51
