All composite numbers have more than two factors whereas prime numbers have only two factors
they are called numbers with 3 factors
Prime numbers are numbers that have only 2 factors, 1 and it's self. Composite numbers are the opposite, they have 3 or more factors.
Never because only composite numbers have more than two factors
Composite numbers have three or more factors.
Because they have only two factors whereas composite numbers have more than two factors
numbers such as 9 and 25. factors of 9 are 1, 9, and 3 factors of 25 are 1, 25, and 5
2 and 3 are the prime factors of 36. Of the factors of 36, 2 and 3 are the only prime numbers.
All numbers have 2 factors in that they can all evenly divide by 1 and themselves. If a number has only 2 factors, then it is prime. The first 3 prime numbers are 2, 3 and 5.
A prime number, such as 3, has only two factors, one and the number itself. A composite number has more than two factors, for example 27, because it has 1, 3, 9, and 27 as factors.
no, only 1 and 3, Factors are used for only whole numbers. Integers are not included when determining if a number is prime or composite since prime and composite are terms used only for whole numbers.
Composite numbers are numbers that have more factors than just 1 and itself. For Example: 8- 1,2,4,8 Prime numbers are numbers that have only 2 factors. Those 2 factors are 1 and itself. For Example: 3- 1,3
If an odd number has more than two factors then it is a composite number but if it has only two factors then it is a prime number. Although all prime numbers are odd except for 2 many more odd numbers are composite numbers having more than two factors as for example 21 is an odd number whose factors are 1, 3, 7 and 21.
Out of the list of factors of 36, 2 and 3 are the only prime numbers.
3, 5 and 7 are prime numbers. Their only factors are one and themselves.
No, prime numbers have only two factors: 1 and itself. Composite numbers have at least 3 factors.
No, just 1 and 7. All prime numbers like 7 only have two factors 1 and itself.
Even numbers do not necessarily have more factors than odd numbers. For example, the number 6 has 4 factors, 1, 2, 3 and 6. However, the number 63 has 1, 3, 7, 9, 21, 63 as its factors. We can see that 63 has more factors than 6. On the other hand, 3 has just 2 factors, 1 and 3. This means that the whether a number has many factors is not related to if it is odd or even.
A number will always have 1 and itself as factors. And thus the only numbers with 2 factors will be prime numbers. The only prime numbers below 20 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17 and 19, and thus these are the only numbers below 20 that have 2 factors.
42, 48 are the two numbers bigger than 40 that have 2 and 3 as their only prime factors.
They are both prime numbers and have only two factors which are themselves and one
Prime numbers have only 2 factors, 1 and itself. Composite numbers have 3 or more factors. 1 has only 1 factor, so it is neither a prime number or a composite number.
The squares of all prime numbers have 3 factors.
2 and 3 Prime numbers have only two factors.
