Dear kamlesh

let equation is

ax2 +bx+c=0   and root are x1 and x2 and a,b,c are integer

x1 +x2 =-b/a

give x1 and x2 are prime ,only possible if a=1

so x1 +x2 =-b/a

and x1*x2 =c

also given

a+b+c =prime number

or 1+b+c=prime number

put vale of b and c

1-(x1+x2) +x1*x2 =prime number

(x1-1)(x2-1)=prime number

only possible if one bracket is equal to 1

ie x1=2

and x2=3(prime number)

so sum x1+x2=2+3=5
