This is the way I had it explained to me (James will surely correct me if I’m wrong – smile). 

Your sample chapters are a litmus test for the agent to see if you are able to hook them as a reader with the begninning of your novel.  If you can hook the agent, then they will see better odds of hooking readers with the same material.

I would consider the prologue as the first chapter.  They can always ask for more!
