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).
