What is prime number?

A number is considered as prime number when it satisfies the below conditions.

  • It should be whole number
  • It should be greated than 1
  • It should have only 2 factors. They are, 1 and the number itself.

Example for prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23 etc.

Why 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16 etc are not prime numbers?

Because, the number 4 can be factored as 2*2 and 1*4. As per the rule of prime number, there should be 2 factors only. They are 1 and the number itself. But, number 4 has 2*2 also. Like this, all remaining numbers 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16 have factors other than 1 and the number itself. So, these are not called as prime numbers.
