(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] A different approach to prime numbers

i read something about choosing a finite set of numbers as primes and deriving the other numbers from aforementioned set so that every number is obtained by multiplying primes (the numbers you choose to be prime in your system) in every possible combination. then looking for a realtion between these primes and the numbers they generate. does someone know this method and who found it? and sorry for my bad english.
