Definition of

Relatively Prime

Two numbers are "relatively prime" when they have no common factors other than 1.

In other words you cannot evenly divide both by some common value.

Examples:
• 7 and 20 are relatively prime (no common factor)
• 6 and 20 are not relatively prime because you can evenly divide both by 2 (2 is a common factor).
