The first composite number is 4.

It means to express a number as the product of its factors. Factors are either composite numbers or prime numbers (except that 0 and 1 are neither prime nor composite).

1 is not prime or composite because first, prime numbers are divisible by 1 and itself so 1 is itself and that is only one number. It is not composite because it only has one factor, itself. 0 is not prime or composite because it has an infinite number of divisors because any whole number that isn't 0 divides 0. It can't be written as two numbers so it can't be prime and for that same reason it can't even be composite.

The first composite number is 4.

It means to express a number as the product of its factors. Factors are either composite numbers or prime numbers (except that 0 and 1 are neither prime nor composite).

Composite numbers are numbers with more than 2 factors. The first composite number is 4. The next composite numbers are 6, 8, and 9. Thus, the fourth composite number is 9.

The first 12 composite numbers are.... 4,6,8,9,10,12,14,15,16,18,20,21,A composite number is basically any number that can go into that number, so like 15 is a composite number because 15x1=15,and then 5x3=15. That's two or more pair of numbers.

yes because 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29 are the first 10 prime numbers so if i say list factors of 12 2 is one

They are: 4, 8, 12 and 16

the answer is 120 because the first three prime numbers are 2,3,5 and the first three composite numbers are 4,6,8.

You can figure out the "composite numbers" from any table of primes - all the positive integers that are not prime numbers are composite (the number one should also be excluded). The first four composite numbers are:4, 6, 8, 9

First of all, every number is a factor - of its multiples.There is no general way to distinguish between prime and composite numbers. At one level, though, there are some simple ways. If the number is not 2, but ends in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 then it is a composite, If the number is not 5 but ends in 0 or 5 it is composite. If the number is not 3 but the sum of all the digits of a number is 3 or divisible by 3, then it is composite. There are moderately complicated divisibility rules for 7 and 11. But this method does not identify all composite numbers and there is no guaranteed method.

The smallest three-digit number divisible by the first three prime numbers (2, 3, and 5) and the first three composite numbers (4, 6, and 8) is 120.

No - although all positive even numbers other than 2 are composite, this does not mean that all composite numbers are even - the first odd composite number is 9, which is equal to 3 x 3.
