There is no formula that will specifically give you a prime number and no non-prime number. Therefore, several large numbers are tested to see if they are primes, until a prime number is found.

By multiplying some of the prime numbers together.

Prime numbers with hundreds of digits have been found, but there are still more to come that haven't been found yet. It's not possible to add up all the prime numbers, because nobody knows what they all are yet. Since there is no last prime number (this was proved 2000 years ago by Euclid), the sum of all prime numbers is infinite.

Prime factors are only found in whole numbers or integers
