    Please identify the school subject so we know clearly what it is. Mat means nothing to me, but Math does.

    The only prime numbers in that range are 1, 3, 5 and 7. They are all odd, 100%.

    Sorry, Assuming you count 1 as a prime number, and 9 is not. 4/5 = 80% If you don't count 1, it is 3/5 = 60%.
