HI A PRIME NUMBER IS GREATER THAN 1 AND CAN ONLY BE DIVIDED BY 1 AND ITSELF

EG    2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 25 29  31  ETC

867-5309... for a good time.. lol

In simple, prime numbers are those numbers which is exactly divide itself. Here the number "1" is excluded, since it is the common factor of all the numbers.

For example, 2 is exactly divisible by 2 only [excluding 1], so 2 is a prime number

Similarly, 3 is exactly divisible by 3 only [excluding 1], so, 3 is a prime number

and so on.

Hope you have got the concept of prime numbers.
