Sorry if I'm writing on wrong board.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1) Write an existentially quantified statement to express conditions for composite number ( composite number m is greater than 1 and there is a natural number greater than besides 1 and m, that divides m)

2) Writing definition using symbolic notation for prime numbers? (p is greater than 1, only natural numbers greater than 0 thatt divides p are 1 and p)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

∃ m ∈ ℕ, m ∣ n => 1<m<n

for the composite

∀ a,b ∈ ℕ: a/b=p ∧ a=p ∧ b=1

for the prime

I'm 100% sure I'm doing something wrong.. Can anyone help me?
