Kinda need some help

My friend challenged me to solve the following problem, and I don't really know how since I haven't really looked into prime numbers and all that. What would be a simple solution to this problem?

4294967297

Prove that given number is prime or not.

But 4294967297 is such a large number to try out all the numbers for factors, unless I write a program, which I don't know how. :/
