Q: What is a prime number? A: A prime number is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. For example, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, and 13 are prime numbers.

Q: How does this tool determine if a number is prime? A: The tool checks whether the given number is divisible by any integer from 2 up to the square root of the number. If it finds any divisor other than 1 and the number itself, it concludes that the number is not prime.

Q: Can I test any positive integer for primality using this tool? A: Yes, you can test the primality of any positive integer greater than 1 by entering the number in the provided field and clicking the "Test Prime" button.

Q: What can I do with the result obtained from this tool? A: The result, indicating whether the number is prime or not, can be used for various purposes, including mathematical analysis, problem-solving, algorithm development, and programming tasks.
