Dear Sanjana,

You have not provided sufficient information or you had copied the question incorrectly. Consider a case in which 'a' and 'b' be 3 and 5 (which are prime no.'s) respectively, and 'x' be 10 (which is >= 4 and also an even no.). Then, 'x is not equal to (a+b) [Since, 8 is not equal to 10].

Kindly, post the question correctly.

Anyone who solves this is entitled to $ 1 million from Clay Math Institute, because you would be proving the Goldbach conjecture that has remained unproved for several decades!
