If you want to know if a number is prime or composite, begin by looking at it. The last digit of 432 is even; that means that 432 is divisible by two, so it can't be prime. Look again. Add up the digits of 432. 4 + 3 + 2 = 9. 9 is divisible by 3, so 432 is divisible by 3. Not prime. In fact 432 is about as composite as you can get. It is 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 X 3 X 3.
