relatively prime

Explanation:
"prime number nombre premier n. m.

Déf. :
Nombre entier qui n'est divisible que par lui-même et par 1.

"
gdt

des nombres premiers entre eux n'ont pas de diviseurs communs.

Two numbers are relatively prime if they have no prime factos in common. For example 20=2*2*5 and 27=3*3*3 are relatively prime because 3 doesn't occur as a factor in 20 and neither 2 nor 5 occur in 27.
