  1. Who told you that mathematicians are tied to prime numbers? And all the more so because you need to know them? Prime numbers and numbers in general are dealt with by Number Theory – this is a very small branch of mathematics. And believe me, even in number theory, prime numbers don't really matter. The topic of prime numbers is very popular in movies, because it is the most understandable topic for a simple, not particularly knowledgeable in mathematics, people. This is also due to the popularization of open unsolved problems in number theory related to prime numbers, due to the complexity of the proof apparatus. In fact, there are much bigger and more relevant problems in other branches of mathematics.
