# Relatively prime

mathematics
Having no common divisors (greater than 1).
Two numbers are said to be relativey prime if there is no number greater than unity that divides both of them evenly.
For example, 10 and 33 are relativly prime. 15 and 33 are not relatively prime, since 3 is a divisor of both.
