Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's actually an integer that has no integral factors but itself and 1. stop trying to look smarter than you are and saying random stuff....btw a natural number can be 0...therefore you're wrong and it doesn't matter if they're distinct or not . where do you think we get sqrts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@gaara438125 natural numbers start at 1, whole numbers start at zero. and also, the right term in your first definition is divided, NOT multiplied.
