Prime Numbers

**Two
is the ONLY EVEN prime number. This is a fact that many students
have difficulty with. 'How can it be even and prime?'**

**Let's
have a look at the definitions again :)**

**It
can be divided by ITSELF (2) and 1. It has only two DISCTINCT factors
(2 & 1) so therefore has too be prime.**
