what is the difference between abstract algebra and number theory? the two topics seem meshed together.

i tried googling both of them and it doesn't really help. it's hard to tell the differences between the two.

can anyone give me a solid answer?

edit: I'm mostly wondering because we also have a course "Abstract Algebra II," and a course "Topics in Number Theory," both of which require "Abstract Algebra I & Number Theory" as a prerequisite. I'm only required to take one and i'd rather take the one I'm more interested in and better at.
