Prime or Composite


What are Prime and Composite Numbers?

 

Answer:

A number which has only two factors is called a Prime Number and a number having more than two factors is called a Composite Number.

For example,

2 has only two factors 1 and 2, so 2 is a prime number.

3 has only two factors 1 and 3, so 3 is a prime number.

5 has only two factors 1 and 5, so 5 is a prime number.

etc. But,

4 has three factors 1, 2, and 4, so 4 is a composite number.

6 has four factors 1, 2, 3, and 6, so 6 is a composite number.

8 has four factors 1, 2, 4, and 8, so 8 is a composite number.

etc.
