Product of Primes

Any Integer can be thought of as a product of multiplying a collection of Prime Numbers. Although, not the most natural way to think of numbers, it does make many math operations easy to visualize... as simple as a card game of Go Fish!
Prime Numbers

A Prime Number is an Integer that can only be evenly divided by 1 or itself. Prime Numbers:
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97 →

Prime "Viral" Creation

The prime number line can be recreated with a virus-like algorithm that creates prime objects who each count through their own value. Primes have no collisions with the previously created numbers. Watch our visualization of this cyclical nature, in a slightly different way, in our sections Factors and Prime Factors.
