Abstract
Some theorems, it seems, are evergreen. New proofs keep turning up for them. One such is the theorem of Pythagoras (the current number of proofs stands at over 300). Another is the claim that the square root of 2 is irrational. A third example is the statement that there exist infinitely many prime numbers. This is the one on which we will dwell in this short article.
