# List of Prime Numbers from 1 to 20

We say that a number is a prime number if the only factors of that number are 1 and itself. If the number has three or more factors then we say that the number is not a prime number. Such numbers are called composite numbers. The number 1 is by definition considered to be neither a prime number nor a composite number.
