Also, I must point out that there is a flaw in your work. You have stated that prime numbers are the only numbers that cannot be simplified. This is incorrect, for example: $\displaystyle \frac{9}{10}$ (9 is not a prime number, although it cannot be simplified when put over 10)

Another prime number: 5. $\displaystyle \frac{5}{10}$ can be simplified easily even though 5 is a prime number.
