## A boatload

There are in infinite number or primes, and they are still being discovered. The people who discover the prime that has more than 10 million digits will win $100,000. I'm pretty sure they're getting close, something like 9.8 million digits.## Related Questions

### Is the sum of prime numbers cannot be a prime?

Not true.
2 + 3 = 5, where all three are primes.
One of the primes in the sum must be 2, otherwise both primes
would be odd and their sum would be even (and >2) and therefore
not prime. Such primes: p and p+2 [3 and 5 in the above example]
are known as twin primes and there are infiitely many twin
primes.
