### How the small prime number test works:

This test iterates through all number form two to the square root of the number-to-test to see if it is a divisor of the number-to-test. It is a reliable method but it can not be used for very large numbers since the calculation would take a very long time. The is as well a limit to the number size that web browsers can handle natively independent of the underlying CPU architecture.

To use this test you enter the number which you want to test (e.g 2003) and then you press "test number" to see if it is prime or not.
