A positive integer with more than two factors.

A composite number is a positive integer that has a positive divisor other than one or itself. In other words a composite number is any positive integer greater than one that is not a prime number.

A prime number is a natural number greater than one that can only be divided evenly by itself and 1. A composite number is the opposite of a prime number. By definition, every natural number greater than one is either prime or composite.

Yes, by definition a composite number is a number that is divisible by another whole number besides one and itself. The only other whole number that nine is divisible by is three. Hope it helped!
