    3 can be divided by 2, but not evenly. 'Evenly' is used here to mean 'giving a whole number answer with no fractional remainder'.

    Incidentally
    A prime number is a number that cannot be divided evenly by any other number except itself and the number one.
    or
    Prime number - a number that cannot be divided evenly by any other number except itself and the number one.
