Prime Numbers Investigation

We undertook a investigation to work out if all square numbers could be made by simply adding two prime numbers. We found that when we had an odd square number, we had to have a number that adds on to 2 to make the square number and sometimes this number wouldn’t be prime. For example, to make 121 with two primes, one of the primes has to be 2, and 119 is not prime.
