Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3when p and q are both not equal to 2 then, p and q are both odd numbers and difference of two odd number is an even number so one of them has to be even. Now, when p=2 then 2q=97 ==> q=95 [not prime] when q=2 then p2=97 ===>p=99[not prime] Thus, there exists no prime such that pq=97,if p and q are prime
