If 0 and 1 are not composite or prime numbers then what are they?

First, zero is not applied to the terms prime and composite because the definitions only apply to natural numbers (positive whole numbers, which does not include zero). One is not prime or composite because one is the unit that is used within the definition of prime of composite numbers, and many definitions of prime and composite even exclude one from the definition. If you want to categorize one within a discussion of prime and composite, it is common to simply call one the unit.


Is 34 a composite or prime?

Composite. Since it is very easy to decipher if 34 is prime or composite, I assume you are unfamiliar with the definitions of prime and composite. A prime number is a number that has only two factors: 1 and itself. A composite number is a number that has more than 2 factors: 1, itself, and other(s). You can immediately tell that 34 is composite because it is even, and the number two is the only EVEN number that is prime.
