The government uses prime numbers to hand out salary, in that way there is always a rest which they can collect back.

Prime numbers are used in multiple shops for seeking out the price of many objects, for example, if a load of 'Kit Kats' were being delivered and the shop wanted the same amount of Kit Kats in every box, they would count them up and if their total was a prime number, they would have a problem.

Those prime numbers are also used for encryption for sending files or messages.

Hackers and other computer pirates try to steal information or break into private transactions. Computer security experts use extremely large prime numbers when they devise codes for protecting vital information that is transmitted between computers.

Hope this will help you!
