Prime Numbers 1 to 1000
Prime numbers are natural numbers with only two factors, one and the number itself. To identify prime numbers from 1 to 1000, first check whether the number is a natural number or not and has no other positive divisor except the number 1 and itself. The number one is not a prime number because it has only one factor and prime numbers have two factors. In this article, we will discuss how to identify prime numbers along with the list of prime numbers from 1 to 1000.

How to Find Prime Numbers from 1 to 1000?
To find prime numbers from 1 to 1000 we just need to find out the number of factors of a particular number. As we already discussed above the definition of prime numbers so it's clear that the number with only two factors is a prime number and the factors of that number are one and number itself. For example, let's take the number 11, 11×1 = 11, it has only two factors that are 11 and 1. So number 11 is a prime number. Let's take another number 12.
1 × 12 = 12
2 × 6 = 12
3 × 4 = 12
12 is not a prime number because there are more than two factors and they are 1,2,3,4,6,12. So it's a composite number. So it's clear, by finding out the factors of a number we can find the prime numbers from 1 to 1000. Factors can be easily found with the help of the factorization method. In this method we only need to find out the possible factors of a natural number, if more than two factors are coming then it's not a prime number and if exactly two factors are coming, that is number one and the number self then it’s a prime number.
Properties of Prime Numbers
Properties of prime numbers are helpful in identifying whether a number is prime or not. They are as follows:
 Any natural number greater than 1 is divisible by 1and itself.
 All even numbers greater than 2 can be shown as the sum of two prime numbers, for example, 8 can be shown as 3 + 5 = 8.
 2 is the only even prime number, all other prime numbers are odd in nature.
List of Prime Numbers From 1 to 1000
Look at the list of prime numbers from 1 to 1000. As already discussed the natural number one is not a prime number because it has one factor so we will begin with number 2.

 Prime Numbers 401500: 401, 409, 419, 421, 431, 433, 439, 443, 449, 457, 461, 463, 467, 479, 487, 491, 499 (total 17 prime numbers)
 Prime Numbers 501600: 503, 509, 521, 523, 541, 547, 557, 563, 569, 571, 577, 587, 593, 599 (total 14 prime numbers)
 Prime Numbers 601700: 601, 607, 613, 617, 619, 631, 641, 643, 647, 653, 659, 661, 673, 677, 683, 691 (total 16 prime numbers)
 Prime Numbers 701800: 701, 709, 719, 727, 733, 739, 743, 751, 757, 761, 769, 773, 787, 797 (total 14 prime numbers)
 Prime Numbers 801900: 809, 811, 821, 823, 827, 829, 839, 853, 857, 859, 863, 877, 881, 883, 887 (total 15 prime numbers)
 Prime Numbers 9011000: 907, 911, 919, 929, 937, 941, 947, 953, 967, 971, 977, 983, 991, 997 (total 14 prime numbers)
Total prime numbers from 1 to 1000 = 168.
Let's crosscheck the(any two) above listed prime numbers by taking out the possible factors of the number.
For example:
 599 = 1 × 599
 929 = 1 × 929
We can see that the above numbers are having only two factors those are number 1 and the number self and no other possible factors are there, therefore they are prime numbers. Look at the chart below that shows prime numbers from 1 to 1000.

Solved Examples

Example 1: Find out if 928 is a prime number or not.
Solution: The list of prime numbers from 1 to 1000 does not cover the number 928. 928 is not a prime number because it is an even number. And it can be easily divided by 2.
928 ÷ 2 = 464
Hence 2 is a factor of 928 apart from 1 and 928 so it's not a prime number. 
Example 2: Find out if 223 is a prime number or not.
Solution: Factors of 223 are 1 × 223 = 223, there are no other possible factors coming apart from 1 and 223, so it's a prime number. Also, 223 is coming in a list of prime numbers from 1 to 1000. 
Example 3: Check out if 437 can be divisible by any prime number or not. Also, find whether it's a prime number or not.
Solution: Factors of 437 = 1, 19 , 23, 437
437÷ 23 = 19
437÷19 = 23
We can see that 437 is easily divisible by prime numbers that are 19 and 23, but it's not a prime number because the number has more than two factors.
FAQs on Prime Numbers From 1 to1000
How to Identify Prime Numbers From 1 to 1000 in Math?
By finding the factors of a number we can easily identify prime numbers from 1 to 1000. If there are more than two factors then it's a composite number and not a prime number. If there are only two factors that are number 1 and number itself then it's a prime number.
Why Is 2 the Only Even Prime Number From 1 to 1000?
2 is the only even prime number in prime numbers from 1 to 1000 because the only possible factors of number 2 are 1 and itself. And remaining even numbers can be easily divided by 2. SO, 2 is the only even number which is a prime number.
What Are the First Few Prime Numbers From 1 to 1000?
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53 etc are the first few prime numbers from 1 to 1000.
What Are Twin Primes?
The prime numbers having a difference of 2 are twin primes. For example, 3 and 5 are twin primes because their difference is 2.
What Is the Difference Between Composite Numbers and Prime Numbers?
The number having at least three factors or more than three are composite numbers and prime numbers are different from composite numbers as they have only two factors. For example 12, 18, 20 are composite numbers, and 11, 17, 19 are prime numbers.
Why Is 0 Not a Prime Number?
Any number divided by 0 is undefined. Also, for any number multiplied by 0, the answer will be zero. There zero is not a prime number because factors are not possible.
Why Is 1 Not a Prime Number?
The number 1 can be divided by only number 1. So the possible factors are only one. Hence it's not a prime number as prime numbers are the numbers having two factors that are one and the number itself.
