This animation image illustrates how to find prime numbers between 2 to 120. Not too mathematical this time, but sticky one. Hope you will enjoy it.
What is a Prime Number?
An integer, say , [ & ] is said to be a prime integer iff its only factors (divisors) are & .
Few easy examples are:
…….etc…this list increases upto infinity & mathematicians are trying to find the larger one than the largest, because primes numbers/integers are not symmetrical (as any one cannot guess the next prime after one.) As of now the biggest prime number found is (probably) , called as Mersenne 47. This has an enormous value of . It is very hard to write it on paper because it consists of digits.
»M47 was Invented in 2008. (more…)
