Prime Numbers

Primes


As mentioned before: an integer is prime if the only divisors of said integer are ±1, or ± said-integer, but 0 and ±1 are not considered to be prime. (Think about it any integer divides

zero – let q be any non-zero integer then q|0 in other words 0=q*n where n is an integer since q is not zero n=0, and one divides any integer–let k be any non-zero integer then 1|k).

Every integer may be written as a product of primes, here are a few examples to clarify what this means:
