    A prime number is a positive integer greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. In other words, it is a number that cannot be divided evenly by any other number except 1 and itself, without leaving a remainder.

    Here are a few examples of prime numbers:

    • 2 is the smallest prime number.
