    @gaara438125 a prime number is a counting/natural number that can only be written as a product of two distinct counting numbers in one and only one way

    it'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

    @gaara438125 natural numbers start at 1, whole numbers start at zero. and also, the right term in your first definition is divided, NOT multiplied.
