a whole number (integer) that has more than 2 different factors. e.g. 18 has factors 1, 18, 2, 9, 3, 6 so it is composite.

any integer that can be divided by another number evenly except by itself and 1 Example: "21, 24, 9, 10"

an integer that is divisible without remainder by at least one positive integer other than itself and one

a counting number that has three or more factors

a natural number which is neither a prime number nor a

an integer which is not prime

an natural number that can be

a nonprime integer

a number that can be broken down into two or more factors

a positive integer that can be factored as a product of two or more prime numbers

a positive integer that has more than two positive whole number factors

a positive integer which is not prime (i

a positive integer with three or more divisors

a positive integer with three or more divisor s

a positive non-prime integer

a whole number with more than two divisors

Any positive integer exactly divisible by one or more positive integers other than itself and 1.

A number that has two or more prime factors. For example: 12 = 2 x 2 x 3

A natural number greater than 1 that is not a prime number, i.e. it has natural number factors besides itself and 1.

A number divisible by more than just 1 and itself.

A whole number having more than two factors.

A number which has another factor other than 1 and itself (non-prime).

an integer greater than 1 which has whole number factors other than itself and 1. For example, 10 is a composite number because it has the factors of 2 and 5, in addition to 1 and 10.

a whole number that has more than two factors.

A number greater than 0 that has more than two different factors. The number 9 is a composite number because it has three factors: 1, 3, and 9.

A composite number is a number that has more than two factors. For example, 6 is a composite number because it has four factors (1, 2, 3, 6). 5 is not a composite number because it has only 2 factors, 1 and 5.

Any number that has more than itself and one as factors, i.e., is not a prime number.

An integer that is not prime

A number greater than zero that can be divided by more than bone (1) and itself/b. It is the opposite of a prime number. 9 is a composite number because it has three factors:1, 3, and 9

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. The numbers zero and one are considered to be neither prime nor composite.
