Goldbach's Marginal Conjecture
Every integer greater than $5$ can be written as the sum of three primes.

This entry was named for Christian Goldbach.
Christian Goldbach first made this conjecture in $1742$ in a letter to Euler.
The marginal conjecture was written in the margin of this letter (hence its name).
