GUEST,Joe_F BS: Is minus 2 a Prime Number (37) RE: BS: Is minus 2 a Prime Number 07 Feb 06

If you are going to allow negative numbers as primes, it is only fair to allow them as factors as well, and that requires complicating the definition, because then (say) -2 does have factors other than itself & 1, viz. -1 & 2.
