    There is no largest prime number.

    \item<1-| alert@1> Suppose $p$ were the largest prime number.
    \item<2-> Let $q$ be the product of the first $p$ numbers.
    \item<3-> Then $q$\;+\,$1$ is not divisible by any of them.
    \item<1-> Thus $q$\;+\,$1$ is also prime and greater than $p$.\qedhere
