Composite number

Revision as of 18:24, 22 June 2006 by Fedja (talk | contribs)

Simply stated, a composite number is a positive integer with at least one divisor different from 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.
