Number theory is the branch of mathematics that is concerned with the mathematical properties of the natural numbers and integers. These include properties such as the parity of a number, divisibility, additive and multiplicative properties, whether a number is prime or composite, the prime factors of a number, the greatest common divisor and least common multiple of two numbers and so on.
