A different view of prime numbers and clever web programming.
Jason Davies has created an amazing web page that shows patterns for prime and non-prime numbers.
Go to http://www.jasondavies.com/primos/ and move your mouse pointer along the number line to see the periodic curves change for each integer.
For the number 56 there are many curves showing the divisors and multiples.
But for a prime number like 43 there’s just one curve starting a 1, then 43 then onto it’s multiples, 86 and beyond.
Use the scroll wheel on your mouse to zoom out on the web page to see the entire line up to 155.
