No because 48 has more than two factors and so therefore it is a composite number

The factors of 36 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36 The factors of 48 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48 2 and 3 are prime.

A fun way to figure out the number of factors, other than listing them all, is to use something called the TAU function. Take a number, such as 36 and write it in its prime factorization So 36=32 x 22 and 48=24 x 3 Now Tau(36) (which we say as Tau of 36) is the number of positive divisors of 36. Tau (48) is the number of positive divisors of 48. We compute Tau by looking at the exponents, 2 and 2 in the prime factorization and addiing 1 to each then multiplying. Don't worry about the base, ONLY the exponents! So Tau(36)=(2+1)(2+1)=9 Tau(48)=(4+1)(1+1)=10 which is greater than 9 so 48 has more factors. If you look at the links section with this question, I provided a webpage that helps a little more!

In that range, the number with the most factors is 48 (10) 36 has 9 and four others are tied with 8.

The answer is 12.
