Perhaps a simpler way to find out if a number is prime.

First multiple every odd number and the prime number 2 by the number 3 to the third decimal point.

examples 1 / 3=.333, 2 / 3=.666, 3 / 3 = 1, 5 / 3 = 1.666, 7 / 3 = 2.333

Every Prime divided by the number 3 to the third decimal point ends in a repeating decimal of either .333 or .666 ( we can have the obvious discussion later about Greek conquerors of Israel introducing the Jews to prime numbers and the very likely possibility the Greeks knew my first step. I am curious as to why their was such a big religious significance attached to primes and if the old testament makes any mention of a holy trinity or the number of the beast, but again thats a latter discussion.)

If you continue dividing every odd number by the number 3 you will notice a problem the numbers 25, 35, 49, 55, 65 etc are not prime but they do end in a repeating decimal of .333 or .666

So if you want to find out if a series of numbers is prime start at the number 1 and start dividing all the numbers by the number 3. Then cross out any number that does not end in either .333 or .666

Then take the first prime number after 3, which would be 5 and multiple it by itself and scratch off that number 25 ( 25 / 3 = 6.333)

Then take the next prime 7 and multiple by 5, 35 ( 35 / 3 = 11.666 ) but its not prime so scratch off the number 35.

Repeat process with the next other primes 11, 13 etc multiple the primes by themselves and then multiply by other primes then scratch them off and the remaining numbers that end in a repeating decimal of .333 or .666 should be prime assuming my theory is correct.

I hope to have some peer review of my theory in the comments:)

Also setting up a multiplication table of known primes and multiplying the primes by themselves and other primes would probably be a great visual aid for kids in case any teachers read this post. The Lefty blogs are about ideas and there are tons of smart people here so since I need help proving my theory and I doubt any peer reviewed math journal would publish someone with only a B.A in Philosophy so I thought I would publish here.

below is a list of Prime Numbers if you wish to test my theory
