### Why is 97 a prime number?

The number 97 (or any prime number) is prime because it has no
integral divisors aside from 1 and itself. The number 1 will go
into 97 exactly 97 times, and 97 will go into 97 exactly 1 time.
Other than that, there are no counting numbers (integers or whole
numbers) that will divide into it and give a whole number
dividend.
