A set of
are coprime if they have no
greater than 1 in common. For example, 9 and 10 are coprime. The factors
of 9 are 1, 3, and 9. The factors of 10 are 1, 2, 5, and 10. Since 9 and 10 have
no factors other than 1 in common, 9 and 10 are coprime.
Coprime integers can also be called relatively prime.
