|body = ''Featured Article: [[Sieve of Eratosthenes|''Sieve of Eratosthenes'']]''<br />
A: Prime Numbers Wiki is an encyclopedia and wiki of prime numbers. In this wiki, you can look up on the prime numbers we currently have, and what's more exciting, you can get to edit them, but be sure the facts you're going to put are about a number.<br />
+
In mathematics, the sieve of Eratosthenes (Greek: κόσκινον Ἐρατοσθένους), one of a number of prime number sieves, is a simple, ancient algorithm for finding all prime numbers up to any given limit. It does so by iteratively marking as composite (i.e. not prime) the multiples of each prime, starting with the multiples of 2.<br />[[File:Wikia-Visualization-Main.png|200px|right]]
+
The multiples of a given prime are generated as a sequence of numbers starting from that prime, with constant difference between them which is equal to that prime. This is the sieve's key distinction from using trial division to sequentially test each candidate number for divisibility by each prime. [[Sieve of Eratosthenes|''Read more...'']]
Q: Is 1 a prime number?<br />
+
}}
A: No, because 1 only has 1 factor, which is 1. Not even composite, because it does not have more than two factors. So, it is said as a '''special''' number.

Welcome to the Prime Numbers Wiki!

Welcome to Prime Numbers Wiki! In this wiki, we will post all the prime numbers that are in a range of 100. Here, we can even post videos of our own, summarizing the page, e.g. showing the prime numbers on 1-100, the difference between prime and composite numbers, and many more about the topic. Even the Sieve of Eratosthenes will help us show the correct way of showing primes. Come, join now! Making links will be a great way to show the proof of why it is prime; just give a subjective detail of the number, e.g. this number is prime because it is not divisible by 2, then show the answer. Dead-end links will make our wiki a rotten one, so please add some links to those numbers. We can even make a bunch of pages!

Look at our YouTube videos online: [1] Look at our videos, like the prime numbers in a range. We would love to see your comments on our videos, and how can we improve them! Just a click of a button, I guess! Press the link above!

Important Pages!

Here are some pages to know before getting started to add a page on our encyclopedia of 857 pages.

Now, check out the Sieve of Eratosthenes. This helps on getting the primes on any range, e.g. a range of 100, 10 by 10. This is actually effective for primes below 10 million.

It does so by iteratively marking as composite (i.e. not prime) the multiples of each prime, starting with the multiples of 2.
