Two relatively prime integers ${m}$,${n}$ share no common factors. For example, 5 and 14 are relatively prime. Also $\frac{m}{n}$ is in lowest terms if ${m}$,${n}$ are relatively prime. Relatively prime is also often referred to as coprime. Relatively prime numbers show up frequently in number theoy formulas and derivations.
