(11) What is the greatest prime number between 1 and 15?

Solution: The greatest prime number between 1 and 15 is 13

(12) Which of the following numbers are prime?

(i) 29

(ii) 57

(iii) 43

(iv) 61

Solution: 29, 57 and 43 are prime numbers as they are only two factor one and itself.

(13) Which of the following pairs of numbers are co-prime?

(i) 12 and 35 (ii) 15 and 37 (iii) 27 and 32 (iv) 17 and 85 (v) 515 and 516 (vi) 215 and 415

Solution: (i) The factor of 12 are – 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12

The factor of 35 are – 1, 5, 7, 35

We note that 1 is the only common factor of 12 and 35

Therefore, 12 and 35 are co primes.

(ii) 15 and 37

Factor of 15 are – 1, 3, 5, 15

Factor of 37 are – 1, 37

There are no common factor between 15 and 37 except 1, so 15 and 37 are co primes.

(iii) 27 and 32

Factor of 27 – 1, 3, 9, 27

Factor of 32 – 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32

There are no common factor between 27 and 32 except 1 so,

27, 32 is a common factor.

(iv) 17 and 85

Factors of 17 – 1, 17

Factor of 85 – 1, 5, 17. 85

There are common factors of 17 and 85 except 1 is 17

So 17 and 85 are not co-primes.

(v) 515 and 516

The factors of 515 = 1, 5, 103, 515

The factors of 516 = 1, 2, 258, 516

There are no common factors between 515 and 516 except 1

So, 515 and 516 are co-prime.

(vi) 215 and 415

Solution: Both are odd numbers. And both numbers last digit is 5 so both numbers divisible by 5.

Therefore, 215 and 415 are co prime.

(14) Express each of the following numbers as the sum of two odd primes.

Solution: (i) 24 = 11 + 13

(ii) 36 = 23 + 13

(iii) 84 = 51 + 33

(iv) 98 = 65 + 33

(15) Express each of the following numbers as the sum of twin primes.

Solution: (i) 24 = 11 + 13

(ii) 36 = 17 + 19

(iii) 84 = 41 + 43

(iv) 120 = 59 + 61

(16) Express each of the following numbers as the sum of three odd primes:

(i) 21 = 3 + 7 + 11

(ii) 35 = 5 + 11 + 19

(iii) 49 = 7 + 11 + 31

(iv) 63 = 7 + 13 + 43
