# (R&F) is it or is it not a Prime Number

Have you ever wondered whether there is a way to determine whether a number is a prime number? Well! for numbers less than 285 follow these steps:

# (R&F) Geometry – Sine & Cosine Rules

These 2 rules are used with non-right angle triangles. Which one to use will depend on the data you are given.
