A composite number is a natural number that can be divided into smaller factors (which are also natural numbers). For example, 6 = 2 x 3.

A Prime number is an integer (greater than 1) that cannot be separated into smaller factors. For example, 7 can't be divided into smaller factors.

A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite.

### What are the numbers that is not prime?

Numbers that are not prime are numbers that are divisible by integers other than one and itself. Since there are a boatload of these numbers, I will try to keep it brief:All integers with the last digit 2, 4, 6, 8, or 0 (besides 2 and 0 themselves) are not prime. (Numbers that are not prime are composite. Numbers ending in 2, 4, 6, 8, or 0 are always divisible by at least the number 2, hence they are not prime.)All integers ending with 5 (besides 5 itself) are not prime (these numbers are always divisible by at least the number 5).Everything else varies, though. For example, with digits ending with 3, 33 is not prime (divisible by 3 and 11), but 13 is prime. With 7, 17 is prime, but 77 is not (divisible by 11 and 7). Also, two-digit integers with identical tens and ones-place digits are not prime (with the exception of 11); these are all divisible by 11.That's the general rule of prime vs. not prime. As you can see, it's too lengthy and excruciatingly painful to list ALL of the composites, because they are abundant.
