Thanks ultimategoalmba for sharing this document.
i found one mistake though as i am going through this: on the first page, it says 0 is a prime number.
Actually, 2 is the lowest prime number.
Moderators:
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks,
Good catch. You are right.
Page 2 under Prime Nos:
"0 is an even integer and prime number; 1 is not a prime number"
0 is an even integer, alright. But, 0 is not a prime number. I see the statement just before that gives a good definition of prime numbers;
"Prime number is a +ve number that has exactly 2 different +ve divisors. 1 and itself. "
All prime numbers are positive.
Lowest prime number is 2.
1 is neither prime nor composite.
2 is the only even prime number.
Please see Prime Numbers sub-section in the following link for details:
