1. Odds and Primes

I just wanted to know if there was a proof that every prime number greater than 2 was odd. Thanks.

Surely! This is quite a simple one, as well - simply note that any even (not odd) number can be written as $2n$ for some $n\in \mathbb{N}$. But then 2 divides that number, thus it is not prime.
