Re: Prime Numbers!!

For prime numbers (p), under 3 squared; p = 2a + 1 (where a = any whole number)
For prime numbers (r), under 5 squared; r = 3p +/- 2 or 4
For prime numbers (i), under 7 squared; i = 5r +/- 6 or 12 or 18 or 24
For prime numbers (m), under 11 squared; m = 7i +/- 30 or 60 or 90 or 120 or 150 or 180
For prime numbers (e), under 13 squared; e = 11m +/- 210 or 420 or 630 or 840 or 1050 or 1260 or 1470 or 1680 or 1890 or 2100

(A no. divisible by a, but not divisible by a group b +/- A no. divisible by group b, but not a = A no. not divisible by a or b.)

* Some rules give 1 but this is not prime.

Re: Prime Numbers!!

Hi Primenumbers;

Welcome to the forum!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Prime Numbers!!

Prime numbers are numbers that have no other factors then one and itself. One is not a prime number... 1x1=1 and 1/1=1.
x = prime
y = anything other than 1 and x
z = composite
a = decimal
x/1=x. x/x=1. x/y=a.
z/1=z. z/z=1. z/y=y.
For something else on prime numbers... go to my Sieve of Eratosthenes post.

By the power of the exponent, I square and cube you! cool
