Comment: Fidel Calvillo: An integer greater than one is called a prime number if its only positive divisors (factors) are one and itself. For example, the prime divisors of 10 are 2 and 5; and the first six primes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11 and 13. The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic shows that the primes are the building blocks of the positive integers: every positive integer is a product of prime numbers in one and only one way, except for the order of the factors. This is great information in regards to what prime numbers are, i my self would really recommend this site for use to see what prime numbers are. I can trully understand what they are talking about in detail and step by step in what the largest prime numbers are.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent like thiry minutes and i already understand something i didnt understand before and now i can trully say that i can take the time to learn mathematics.
