Maybe you need to find out how can you save money by adjusting your budget, you need to make a toy for someone; you have to fix some small furniture of your house by taking some measurements and many more. All of these things require a basic as well as an intermediate level of understanding of mathematics subject. So even if you thought you can easily run away from mathematics by selecting some other subject but you have to study mathematics at least in school years.

Now the question that arises here is why these sets of numbers have a specific name? The answer is because these sets of numbers have different properties that are why they are divided into different sets. You can be called these properties are also called facts.

  • In other words, prime numbers are multiples of one and the same number itself. 
  • Now, most people make the mistake of writing one as the prime number. The prime fact is one is not a prime number because all other numbers of multiple of one.
