Why are all prime numbers except 2 are odd?

This is because they are only two factors in that number. It may seem to you that all prime numbers odd, but it is not true. Most of them however, are prime numbers. This is why most of the odd numbers are prime numbers.


Why do prime numbers seem to get less frequent as you go in a positive direction?

As you continue moving along the natural number line in the positive direction, you continue to distance yourself from 0 by greater and greater amounts, meaning there are more and more natural numbers between you and 0. Since all that it takes for a number to not be a prime number is to have one natural number besides 1 and itself as a divisor, the more natural numbers available as potential divisors, the higher the chances of one of them actually being a divisor.

Are their more prime numbers than normal numbers?

No, there are more normal numbers than prime numbers. Since 2, 3, 5, 13, and 19 are some examples of prime numbers, those only seem to be a few. Remember, numbers can stretch as far as someone wants, so 1,000 isn't a prime number, since you can have 250 and 4 to multiply into it, and 250 and 4 aren't prime numbers. Since the number scale can go on forever, there are more real numbers than prime numbers.

Why do prime numbers seem to get less frequent as you go larger into numbers?

This is not an easy question to answer, but you are correct that primes become less dense as you look at larger numbers.One way I intuitively think of this is, take a number like 10, and compare it to one like500000000, the smaller number certainly has fewer potential factors than the larger one.In other words, as the numbers get larger, many of them will have many more possible factors.Some will still have only 1 and themselves, or perhaps 3 or 4 factors, but in general, there are more factors. This is NOT a mathematical argument, just a way to think about the idea.

Which of the folloing groups of numbers are all prime numbers?

Asking a multiple-choice question without providing the choices doesn't really seem fair. Pick the ones that only have two factors.
