**N**eil Gunther has pointed out on his blog that the prime number decomposition R package schoolmath contains mistakes in the function primes, listing 1 as a prime number but also including decomposable numbers like 133 in its list of prime numbers:

> primes(100,140)

[1] 101 107 111 113 123 129 131 137

> primes(50,140)

[1] 51 53 59 61 67 71 73 79 83 89 97 101 103 107 109 113 127 131 **133**

[20] 137 139

> is.prim(primes(133)

[1] **FALSE**

> is.prim(primes(200,300))

[1] **FALSE** TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE **FALSE** TRUE

[13] TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE

> sum(1-is.prim(primes(1,1000)))

[1] **10**

> data(primlist)

> sum(1-is.prim(primlist[1:25000]))

[1] **3309**

**T**his is rather annoying and I hope it gets quickly fixed!
