Hey Rage,
That was a sharp, and precise reply. Thanks.
The link for "Euclid's lemma" was helpful, however it builds other theorems based on the fundamental fact that " Any non prime number can be expressed as product of prime numbers".
 
Lastly, what an explanation..

As you have pointed out, their properties can be used in a lot of algorithms. But this is the case for other "type" of numbers having other properties used in other type of algorithms. So your question is no easy to answer... It is like asking why knives are useful to cut something.

I just loved it, But sadly.. This is what I want someone to answer for me.. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
