No because 40 is a composite number with more than two factors.

41 is prime, so the next composite is 42 (2*3*7).

no even number greater than 2 is prime so it is composite40 is a composite number. This is because composite numbers are any number that has more than two factors(one and itself). Therefore, since 2 and 4 to name a few are factors of 40 that makes it a composite number.

4, composite. 67, prime.

A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Ex. 2. 3, 5, 7, 11. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. Ex. 6, 8, 10, 40. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite.

Composite. It is 2 x 2 x 2 x 5.

Look up a table of prime numbers. All those numbers that are not prime, are composite - except 1, which is neither prime nor composite.

not a prime 40 = 4 x 10 = 2 x 20 and so on

30,32,33,34,35,36,38,39,40 are the composite numbers between 30 and 40. Composite numbers are numbers that are not prime numbers.

no Prime numbers are divisible only by themselves and 1. 40/10 = 4, for example, so no it is not prime.

It is a composite number because it has more than two factors

41 is prime, so the next composite is 42 (2*3*7).
