What is a primary triad?

The term primary may refer to a triad in root position, in other word without and inversions.....for example c,e,g in that order from bottom to top....primary triads also can be the triads built on each scale degree. triads are either major, minor, diminished or augmented.

No, that would be a tonic triad. (Tonic means first, triad means three; therefore a tonic triad would be a three note chord of a I,III,IV structure.)
The three primary triads of a scale are those built off the tonic, subdominant and dominant degrees (that's I, IV and V) of that scale.
In the C major scale, the three primary triads are C Major, F Major and G Major. Note that these are the only major triads that can be played on only white keys.
