There are inﬁnitely many prime numbers. Proof. Following Euclid’s proof, we shall show that to every prime p there is a greater one. Assume that p is the greatest prime number, and let q = 1 · 2 · 3 · . . . · p. Then, q + 1 is not divisible by 2, 3, . . . , p. It follows that q is divisible only by 1 and itself, and thus, it is a prime number greater than p. This, however, contradicts the hypothesis that p is the greatest prime, and it follows that there is no greatest prime. In other words, the set of primes is inﬁnite. Help clarify how 1*2*3..*p + 1 is not divisible by 1,2,3 etc..
