the square root of 223 is less than 15, so we only need to test its divisibility by 2,3,5,7,11 and 13. If you try dividing by any of these you do not get a whole number, so 223 is a prime.

Whether fractions work better than decimals or less as well is very much a question of your preference.

No. Even if you manage to get it to work, it will be excruciatingly slow.

No. For example, 5 divided by 0.5 is equal to 10. In general, assuming you work with positive numbers only, if you divide by a number GREATER than one, the result will be less than the original number; if you divide by a number LESS than one, the result will be larger than the original number.
