8 is a composite number. 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.

16 is a composite number as it has factors other than just 1 and itself (2 and 8 for example).

Neither 246 nor 8 are prime numbers; rather, they are both composite numbers.
