What is the largest two digit prime number?
Step by Step Explanation:
- A prime number is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. We also know that even numbers are not prime numbers.
- The largest 2 digit number is 99. We know 99 is divisible by 1, 3 and itself.
Next, we check for next odd two digit number less than 99, which is 97.
97 is divisible by 1 and itself only.
- Therefore, the largest two digit prime number is 97.
