    To be able to answer this question (and others about prime numbers) it is important you know exactly what is meant by a prime number. This means you have to learn the definition of a prime number, it is not enough to have only a vague idea what prime numbers are (like "numbers as 3, 5, 7 11 etc.") Do you know the definition of a prime number?

    um A Prime Number can be divided evenly only by 1, or itself. like 5 can only be divided evenly by 1 or 5, so it is a prime number. But 6 can be divided evenly by 1, 2, 3 and 6 so it is NOT a prime number (it is a composite number). right?
