so if we are given a question X, Y are prime numbers

we must assume its a positive prime number and not the negative scenario?

Only positive numbers can be primes. So, the smallest prime number is 2.

For more check Number Theory chapter of Math Book: math-number-theory-88376.html

Hope it helps.
