Every positive integer greater than 1 is either prime or composite.

Every natural number above one is either prime or composite, if it is prime, its only factors are itself and 1, if it is composite it has additional factors beyond that.

None, everything is either prime or composite.

No, because it's either a prime number or a composite number.

In all but one case. Literally, The number "one" is neither prime nor composite.

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.

they are both prime and composite numbers

is every number in the nineties is a composite answer

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.

1 is not composite or prime.

97 is the only prime number.

Every positive number greater than one is either prime or composite and can't switch from one to the other.

Yes, a composite number is a positive integer which has a positive divisor other than one or itself. By definition, every integer greater than one is either a prime number or a composite number and since 2 is the only even prime number the result is every number greater than 2 is a composite number

No

That is how they are defined. Any number greater than 1 is composite if it has a factor other than 1 and itself. If it is not a composite number then it is a prime number. It mustbe one or the other and the result follows.

No, 97 is a prime number.

Yes.

Every even number except 2 is composite (not prime).

It is composite. Remember, every even number is composite EXCEPT the number 2.

Every even number greater than 2 is composite.

no, because a composite number can be found by multiplying three prime numbers. 3*2*5 = 30, and 30 is a composite number and also has 3 prime factors. Every prime number has 1 prime factor by the way, itself. 1 is neither prime nor composite.

No two is a prime number

A prime number is a natural number that has exactly two distinct natural number divisors: 1 and itself. A composite number is a positive integer which has a positive divisor other than one or itself.

456482 is a composite number because it is divisible by 2. Every even number except 2 is a composite number.
