A Prime number is only divisible evenly by 1 and itself, so yes a prime number has to be divided by a prime number (the number being itself).

A prime number is any number that is only divisible by one and itself. So the prime number 11 is prime because only 1 and itself (11) can divide it. 11 is prime because it is not divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10. If 11 was divisible by a prime number, like 3 then it would no longer be prime.

These are all the prime numbers up to 100:

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 81, 89, and 97.
