Goldbach's conjecture states that every even number > 2 can be expressed as the sum of two prime numbers. The only even prime is 2, so 2 doesn't figure in the primes that Goldbach refers to (how?)


Take n\ >\ 7


Pick a random odd prime number  m\ <\ n-2\ ,\ m\ \in P


Now n\ -\ m\   is even and > 2, and hence n\ -m\ =\ p\ +\ q\ where\ p,q\ \in P, by Goldbach's conjecture


Now, n\ =\ m\ +p\ +\ q\ where\ m,p,q\in P

Let n be an even number greater than 6. Then by Goldbach, there exists primes p and q such that

n = p + q

Where both p and q are odd and at least one is greater than 3. WLOG say q > 3.

n + 1 = p + q + 1 = p + (q + 1)

Applying Goldbach to q + 1 > 4, there exists odd primes r and s such that:

q + 1 = r + s thus,

n + 1 = p + r + s

Where p, r, and s are odd primes.

Finally, note that since n > 6 was an arbitrary even number, n + 1 > 7 is an arbitrary odd number.
