A prime number is a number with two and only two factors: 1 (also known as unity) and itself. A composite number is a number with more than two factors; in other words, it has at least one factor besides 1 and itself. 44 has factors other than 1 and itself, so it is not a prime number. For example, it is divisible by 2 because it is an even number. Therefore, 44 is a composite number.
