Sample question #1. How many prime numbers are there in this series? 37, 40, 43, 46, 49, 52, 55, 58

A. 2
B. 3
C. 4
D. 5

Answer to sample question #1.
 
A. 2
 
Explanation:
 
37 = 1 x 37
40 = 1 x 40 = 10 x 4 = 20 x 2 = 5 x 8
43 = 1 x 43
46 = 1 x 46 = 2 x 23
49 = 1 x 49 = 7 x 7
52 = 1 x 52 = 2 x 26 = 4 x 13
55 = 1 x 55 = 11 x 5
58 = 1 x 58 = 2 x 29
 
Ang prime numbers ay may dalawang factors lamang. 1 at ang mismong number. Kaya sa tanong na ito, ang prime ay 37 at 43. Parasa madalian pagkilatis, tandaan na ang mga numbers na divisible by 2 ay automatic na composite numbers. Kaya kapag may nakita kayo sa pamimilian na may numbers ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, hindi na agad prime number iyon.
 
Kapag nakakita kayo ng numbers na nagtatapos sa 5, ibig sabihin ay divisible by 5 iyon kaya hindi na rin iyon prime number. Minsan may mga numbers na nakakalito gaya ng 51 at 87. Akala mo sa una ay prime number kasi hindi naman divisible by 2 or 5. Pero divisible by 3 pala sila. Ang isang halimbawa pa 91. Hindi ito divisible by 2, 5 at 3 pero divisible by 7 pala. Kaya ang payo ko sa inyo, after checking kung divisible by 2, check ninyo kung divisible by 3, 5 at 7. Magagamit mo ito lalo na kung malalaking numbers ang pamimilian.
