Let n be positive integer greater than 1. We call n prime if the only positive integers that (exactly) divide n are 1 and n itself. For example, the first seven primes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 and 17. (We should learn more about primes in Chapter 4.) Use the method of exhaustion to show that every integer in the universe 4, 6, 8, ..., 36, 38 can be written as the sum of two primes.
