This number is prime, as are its digits 1,3 and 7, and for bonus points as is the sum of this set (11)
1 is not prime

Nope, 1 is not prime
“If the definition of a prime number were changed to call 1 prime, many statements involving prime numbers would need to be reworded in a more awkward way. For example, the fundamental theorem of arithmetic would need to be rephrased in terms of factorizations into primes greater than 1, because every number would have multiple factorizations with different numbers of copies of 1. Similarly, the sieve of Eratosthenes would not work correctly if it handled 1 as a prime, because it would eliminate all multiples of 1 (that is, all other numbers) and output only the single number 1. Some other more technical properties of prime numbers also do not hold for the number 1: for instance, the formulas for Euler's totient function or for the sum of divisors function are different for prime numbers than for 1. By the early 20th century, mathematicians began to agree that 1 should not be listed as prime, but rather in its own special category as a "unit".”

This clarification is 165 words long.

Why don't people follow?

Can't you count?

I assumed you mistyped and meant 163, which Flavius ratified in taking us to 164.

This was already posted. I see you're reading this thread as closely as you read mafia games! ;) (But let's not discuss an ongoing game.)
