I don't understand the difference between relatively prime and pairwise relatively prime

]]>Relatively prime means that **there is no factor common to all numbers in the group .**

Pairwise relatively prime means that if you look at all possible pairs of the numbers, **there is not a pair that share a common factor.**

$$ \textcolor{red}{4 \text{ } \text{ } 10}\text{ } \text{ } 7 $$

$$ \text{These are relatively prime (because 7 doesn't have 2 as a factor)} $$

$$ \textcolor{red}{4 \text{ } \text{ } 10}\text{ } \text{ } 7 $$

$$\begin{aligned} \text{Look at them pairwise: } &\textcolor{red}{4} \text{ and } \textcolor{red}{10} \text{ are both multiples of 2 }; \\ &\textcolor{red}{4} \text{ and } 7 \text{ are not both multiples of some number,}\\ \text{ and } &\textcolor{red}{10} \text{ and } 7 \text{ are not both multiples of some number} \end{aligned} $$$$ \text{These three numbers are not pairwise relatively prime. } $$

$$ \textcolor{blue}{44 \text{ } \text{ } 13 \text{ }\text{ } 25 } $$

$$ \text{ These are not all multiples of the same } x, \text{ for some number } x, \text{ so they are relatively prime} $$

$$ \textcolor{blue}{44 \text{ } \text{ } 13 \text{ }\text{ } 25 } $$

$$\begin{aligned} \text{Look at them pairwise: } &\textcolor{blue}{44} \text{ and } \textcolor{blue}{13} \text{ are not both multiples of some number }; \\ &\textcolor{blue}{13} \text{ and } \textcolor{blue}{25} \text{ are not both multiples of some number,}\\ \text{ and } &\textcolor{blue}{44} \text{ and } \textcolor{blue}{25} \text{ are not both multiples of some number} \end{aligned} $$$$ \text{These three numbers are also pairwise relatively prime.} $$
