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.
It is 2310.
You first find all of the factors of the number. A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0.
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).
You do! You first list all the factors of a number. A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite.
Just multiply the first five prime numbers! 2x3x5x7x11 = 6x35x11 = 210x11 = 2310. Any multiple of this number "has the first five prime numbers as factors", but 2310 is the smallest such number.
First, you have to know the difference between Prime Numbers and Composite Numbers. Prime Numbers are numbers that has only two factors: 1 and itself. Composite Numbers are numbers that have factors other than 1 and itself. Composite numbers are always even, with only one exception: number 2. Two is the ONLY EVEN PRIME NUMBER. Never will you encounter another even prime number because it will always have AT LEAST 3 factors. # ITSELF. # ONE. # TWO. Now that we know the difference between Prime and Composite, we can answer your question. 4,567,278 is an even number. It is divisible by itself, one, two and probably more numbers. Therefore, it is COMPOSITE!
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.
Just multiply the first three prime numbers together.
Yes. To be composite, the first number has at least 2 prime factors, the second number also has at least prime factors; the product of the two will have at least 4 prime factors, so it must be a composite number.
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.
