21 and 22 are consecutive composite numbers.

It's any set of consecutive integers that are composite. For instance, 8, 9, and 10 are consecutive composites.

when i did this problem i was doing a eratosthenes sieve method and the numbers was from 1-100 so i got the longest string of consecutive composite numbers on the grid are 74-82 this should be right. BTW I'm 13 doing my moms college work Sorry, but 79 is a prime number. I got 90~96

21 and 22 are the first pair.It can be proven that, given any number n, there are sequences of n consecutive composite numbers.

Basically, composite numbers are the non-prime numbers. Take a table of prime numbers, and look for any two prime numbers, one after the other, that have a difference greater than 2. Any numbers in between are consecutive composite numbers. For example, the next prime number after 13 is 17; that makes 14, 15, and 16 three consecutive non-primes, i.e., composite numbers.

The longest factor string of any composite number is its prime factorization.

A rectangular number is the product of two consecutive integers, that is, n (n + 1). A composite number is a positive integer with more than two factors.
