Every number greater than 1 has 1 and the number itself as factors.
If it has no other factors besides these two factors, it is a Prime number.
If it has more factors than 1 and itself, it is a composite number.
That's a composite number.
A composite number is a number that is not a prime number, ie it has more than two distinct factors. The factors of 25 are 1, 5, 25 - three distinct factors.
Yes, because it has more than two factors.
I think you meant to say that it's never greater than the least of the numbers.The easiest explanation is to simply remind you that the GCF is a factor of every numberin the group, and no factor of a number can be greater than the number itself.
If the remainder is greater than the divisor then you can divide it once more and get one more whole number and then have less remainders.
A whole number greater than 1 that has 3 or more factors is 10.
it's called a composite number [ a number greater than 1 w/ more than two factors.]
If it has more than two factors then it is a composite number
A number that is greater than one having more than two factors is called composite number. e.g. 4,6,8,9 etc.
84 has 12 factors.
