    Everyone knows the meaning of prime. But i have never seen a person explain it properly. Try to post a complete definition of prime.

    A prime number is a number that can only be divided by 1 and itself into whole numbers.

    I think of it as a natural number which is exactly divisible only by 1 and itself. Conventionally, I don't think 1 is considered to be a prime. I can't think of anything else to add, but sense you feel there should be more. Could you comment.
