Show that the sum of two consecutive odd primes has at least 3 (not necessarily distinct) prime factors. For example,
3+5=2*2*2
5+7=2*2*3
7+11=2*3*3
(In reply to
at least 3 by Ady TZIDON)
Two consecutive primes may have a difference greater than 2  maybe you are thinking about TWIN primes (such as 5 and 7, 11 and 13, 17 and 19, 29 and 31, and so on) but the problem didn't ask for these primes.
