According to euclid every prime no is of form 6k+1or 6k1 and every odd no of form 6k+1,6k+3or6k+5 let three distinct integers p,q,r for 6k+1= 6p+1+6q+1+6r1 =6(p+q+r)+1 6k+3=6p+1+6q+1+6r+1 =6(p+q+r)+3 6k+5=6p1+6q1+6r+1 =6(p+q+r1)+5 So every odd no. geater than 7 will be sum of three primes.

You have proven that every number coprime to 6 is the sum of three integers coprime to 6. You haven't proven that the three will be prime.

it is not that for ex 17=6*2+5 =6*1+1+6*11+6*11 and for any n either 6k+1 or 6k1 is prime

Neither 119 nor 121 is prime; k=20.

what I meant was every prime no. is of form 6k+1 or 6k1 seehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primali...#Naive_methods

Every prime greater than 3 is of the form 6k+1 or 6k1, but not every number of the forms 6k+1 or 6k1 is prime. So your proof fails.

If we accept the proof as valid then the no. in form of 6k+1 or 6k1 can be rewritten as sum of some no. which at a stage will become prime . So every no. is sum of at least 3 primes.

Even if we don’t accept the proof as valid every no. of the form 6k+1 will be sum of 2 no. of the form 6k+1 and 6k1 which will have to be a prime .So every no. will be sum of a least 3 primes.
