- Do we have negative prime numbers? 7 answers
Generally, the definition of prime numbers is all those natural numbers greater than 1, having only two divisiors, the number itself and 1. But, can the negative integers also be thought of in the same way?
For example: if we take the case of -1. Then it is divisible by 1 and itself. Can we call it prime? Why? Or why not?
