Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a composite number is a whole number that can be written as a product of two other whole numbers (not including itself and 1) another way to say it is a composite number is NOT a prime number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i never understood composite and prime numbers no matter how much sombody tried to explain it to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here is an example 6 is composite because \(6=3\times 2\) 7 in prime, because it only has itself and 1 as a factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is really all there is to it the only part that might be confusing is that 1 is not prime or composite, and 2 is prime yeah sort of but even odd only means divisible by 2 9 is composite because \(9=3\times 3\) but it is not even

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the numbers you have to consider are \[\{2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12\}\] can you tell which ones of those are composite and which are prime?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am not interested in choices particularly more interested in if you know which numbers are composite then it is only a matter of counting

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let me ask one more time of the numbers \[\{2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12\}\] which are composite?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i will show you what do do as soon as you name the composite numbers if you cannot do that, there is no way you can do this question, might as well forget it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0want to take them one at a time? i will start 2 is prime 3 is prime how about 4?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no \(4=2\times 2\) all even numbers except 2 are composite

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we list the composite numbers, then count how man times we see them in the table you posted they are \[\{4,6,8,9,10,12\}\]
