Hello sir,
i have one problem reguarding to this prime numbers.

question : prove : every integer of the form 3n+2 has a prime factor of
the
same form( ie., 3n+2 ).
• ... Looks like homework! All numbers hav one of the three forms 3n, 3n+1 and 3n+2. First think why no factor of a number of the form 3n+2 has the form 3n.

Looks like homework! All numbers hav one of the three
forms 3n, 3n+1 and 3n+2. First think why no factor of
a number of the form 3n+2 has the form 3n. Next think
what you would get if every factor was 3n+1.
