The relationship between prime numbers and composite numbers is that they are antonyms or opposites of each other. A natural number, is either prime or composite, but it can not be both. Prime numbers have only two factors, one and itself. Composite numbers are whole numbers that are not prime numbers, which means that they have factors other than one and itself.
