What is a prime number?
By definition, a prime number is any natural number
that can only be divided by one and itself. This means that it is
possible to get this number only by multiplying two numbers together,
one of which is one, and the other being the number itself. One
is not a prime number, because it has only one factor. All prime
numbers are odd, except for two, which is the only even prime number.
All other primes end in either one, three, seven or nine. Negative
numbers cannot be prime, because by definition a prime is a natural
number, which means it must be a positive whole number. There is
an infinite number of primes.

Project Type- Descriptive
My project is all about prime numbers. I will investigate the history
of prime numbers, as well as the types, patterns, and uses of prime
The software tools used for this project were Dreamweaver, WS FTP
I got the idea for this project sitting in math class. We touched
on prime numbers, but I wanted to learn more about them, so I decided
to do my science fair project on them.
