1. ## Goldbach's conjecture proof?

Hi, i was trying to look for a proof for goldbach's conjecture, but I dont seem to find it, there are some unofficial proofs that were not accepted. I wonder if it was actually proven?
Thanks,
Ted

No, it's not proven. That's why the word 'conjecture' is still there.

3. then im wondering, if you take any number greater than 3, let the number be n element of Z:
let p = n%3
0 < p < 3,
case 1 if p=1:
then n can be written as a series of 3 and a 1
case 2 if p=2
then n can be written as a series of 3 and a 2

Isn't it just as simple as that?

No. And MHF is not the place to post 'proofs' (or otherwise) of open problems such as Goldbach's Conjecture for peer review.
