odd and prime are two different things ,but odd numbers can be prime or composite just depends if you can multiply it with another number except 1 here's an example 7 ( 7 is odd and is prime because it has 2 factors "7 & 1" 15 is odd ,but not prime because 5x3 is 15 and 15x1 is 15 5 and 3 are factors of 15 so all odd numbers are not prime all even numbers are composite except the number 2.
