There are more composite numbers. The larger a number gets, the more likely it is to have multiple factors.

How do you find the LCM of 3y and y2?

First you express the numbers as their prime factors: 3y = 3, y y2 = y, y Next you identify any common prime factors. In this case both numbers have y as a prime factor. Finally you multiply the numbers and divide by the HCF: 3y(y2)/y = 3y2 and thus the LCM is 3y2


How do you find the LCM and GCF of two prime numbers?

What is the GCF of two prime numbers?

A prime number is a number with exactly 2 divisors: 1 and itself. Because of this, the only common divisor of two distinct prime numbers is 1, thus 1 is the gcf. So the correct answer would be: Given two prime numbers, namely x and y, the gcf is --- 1, if x and y are unequally --- x, if x=y.

What is the least common multiple of two prime numbers?

The LCM of prime numbers is simply their product (a x b, or x*y). The least common multiple of two numbers is the product of the two numbers divided by their greatest common factor. The greatest common factor of two prime numbers is 1. Therefore, the least common multiple of two prime numbers is the two numbers multiplied together, since dividing by 1 will not change the answer. The same applies to "relatively prime" numbers such as 10 and 21, where the GCF is also 1.


If the sum of two prime numbers x and y is odd Then the product of x and y must be divisible by which number?

Prime numbers are usually odd.The only even prime number is 2.When two prime numbers are added say 3 and 5 the result wil be 8(even).So the question of ur answer is only applicable to the following set:2,3.The sum of an even prime and an odd prime will exhibit an odd number.2+3=5.When this two prime nos. are multiplied 2*3=6,it will be divisible by both 2 an 3.


Describe two methods of comparing numbers?

If you have two numbers X and Y then One method of comparison is to calculate X - Y. If the answer is positive then it tells you how much more X is compared to Y. If the answer is negative then it is how much more Y is compared to X. If Y is not 0, then X/Y tells you how many times X is compared to Y.
