Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A prime is an integer whose only positive factors are 1 and the number itself. Take for example 3. It is divisible by 1,3,1 and 3 but the only positive factors are 1 and 3 so it is prime. 4 is not prime because its positive factors re 1, 2 and 4
