please can you answer me this question: is 71 a prime number?,please quickly, thanks

A prime number denotes a natural number greater than 1 that cannot be divided by anything other than 1 and itself without causing a fractional number, i.e., a number with decimals.

You can test if 71 is a prime number by going through all the cases, 71/2, 71/3, 71/4....71/70. You will find that none of these produce a nice whole integer. Therefore, 71 is a prime number.

A prime number means that it is not divisible by another whole number. Since 71 can not be divided by another whole number...it would be prime.

Your answer is yes. 71 is a prime number.

1*71 =71

Factors of 71 =(1,71)

Since 71 has only two factors 1 and 71, then 71 is a prime number.
