Composite number

Revision as of 16:43, 22 June 2006 by MCrawford (talk | contribs) (rewrote definition)

Simply stated, a composite number is a positive integer with at least one divisor between 1 and itself.

Note that the number one is neither prime nor composite. It follows that two is the only even prime number, three is the only multiple of three that is prime, and so on.
