Problem statement: The Riemann hypothesis involves two products of the zeta function z(s) which are: Prime numbers and the zeros of the zeta function z(s). It states that the zeros of a certain complex-valued function z (s) of a complex number s ≠ 1 all have a special form, which may be trivial or non trivial. Zeros at the negative even integers (i.e., at S = -2, S = -4, S = -6...) are called the non-trivial zeros. The Riemann hypothesis is however concerned with the trivial zeros. Approach: This study tested the hypothesis numerically and established its relationship with prime numbers. Results: Test of the hypotheses was carried out via relative error and test for convergence through ratio integral test was proved to ascertain the results. Conclusion: The result obtained in the above findings and computations supports the fact that the Riemann hypothesis is true, as it assumed a smaller error as possible as x approaches infinity and that the distribution of primes was closely related to the Riemann hypothesis as was tested numerically and the Riemann hypothesis had a positive relationship with prime numbers.
