If you mean the product, that's by definition. A composite number has smaller factors. If you multiply two positive integers, none of which is 1, together, then it follows that the product has smaller factors - namely, the numbers you multiplied together.
The sum of any two prime numbers is not always a composite number. The sum of 2 and 11 is 13, and 13 is a prime number, not a composite number.
A composite number. (If they are different numbers, keep in mind 1 is not a prime number)
its means the numbers that you multiply with to get a product has more than numbers to multiply THAT with than just that number and 1.
Composite numbers have three or more factors.
it is a composite number because you can tell from the 8 that it is an even number, and even numbers can always be divided.
the two prime numbers will be factors of that number, which would make that number a composite number
No, those are prime numbers. Composite numbers can have besides 1 and itself. For example, let's say the number is 35. You can multiply 1 and 35, but you can also say 5 multiplied by 7. That is composite.
No not always because composite numbers can be the product of 2 or more prime factors
You could try dividing by composite numbers but the number that you are testing is divisible by a composite number, then it will be divisible by a prime factor of that composite number and that prime factor will be smaller. It is always easier to work with smaller numbers.
Because all other even numbers have 1 & 2 always as a factor which makes it a composite number.
No. If you multiply any numbers, those numbers are factors of whatever product you get. Therefore, this product is a composite number; it has atleast the two factors you multiplyed before. Compposite numbers are never prime. If the two factors above were prime, you would still end up with a composite number. For example: 3 times 5 equals 15. The factors of 15 are 1, 3, 5, and 15. 15 is composite. 7 time 51 equals 357. The factors of 357 are 1, 7, 51, and 357. 357 is composite.
Some are. However prime numbers are always odd, with the exception of the number 2.
No, the product will always be even.
Not always as for example 20+9 = 29 which is a prime 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!
To distinguish them from prime numbers. Composite means "made up of various parts or elements." Prime numbers have one and only one factor pair. Composite numbers have a various number of factor pairs, but always more than one.
The product of two prime numbers is always a composite number, and it never is a prime number.
The answer depends on how the numbers are combined: addition, subtraction or multiplication.
Zero does not have a distinct set of factors. You can multiply any quantity of numbers together, then just multiply by zero to get zero.
It is 16 because a composite number always has more than 2 factors
No - although all positive even numbers other than 2 are composite, this does not mean that all composite numbers are even - the first odd composite number is 9, which is equal to 3 x 3.
Prime numbers are numbers that can only be multiplied itself and one.For ex.87 is a prime number. You can't multiply a number to get 87. Composite is a number that can be multiplied by other numbers than itself. For ex.55 is a commposite number. 11 and 5 can get you 55. Hope u understand! Good luck!
