A prime number is a number that has only two factors, that is 1 and the number itself. The smallest non-zero number is 1. 1 has only one factor which is 1 itself.

A prime number must have exactly two factors (1 and the number itself). Therefore, the number 2 is the lowest prime number as its only factors are 1 and 2.

perfect number, a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its proper divisors. The smallest perfect number is 6, which is the sum of 1, 2, and 3. Other perfect numbers are 28, 496, and 8,128.

For an integer to be prime it must be greater than 1, and the only integers that divide into it exactly are 1 and itself such as 3 and 13, etc. 0 is less than 1 so can't be prime. Composite integers are those that are the products of primes such as 6 = 2x3.

It is not a positive integer and does not satisfy the fundermental theorem of arithmetic(you can't write it as the product of primes;0 is not prime) and it doesn't divide by itself. In conclusion, 0 is like 1 in the fact that it is neither prime nor composite.

List of Prime Numbers Up to 100. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97. Prime Numbers Facts: The only even prime number is 2 and the remaining even numbers can be divided by 2.

Currently, the largest known prime number is 282,589,933−1. This prime, along with the previous seven largest primes to be discovered, are known as Mersenne primes, named after the French mathematician Marin Mersenne (1588–1648).

No, 12 is not a prime number. The number 12 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12. For a number to be classified as a prime number, it should have exactly two factors. Since 12 has more than two factors, i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, it is not a prime number.

The number 2 has only two whole number factors, 1 and itself. That's pretty much it after this: The other numbers that are even up from two are all divisible by that number in some way. This is also known as the "oddest prime" because it's the only prime number that's even, so it's also known as the odd one out.

Zero is neither prime nor composite. Since any number times zero equals zero, there are an infinite number of factors for a product of zero. A composite number must have a finite number of factors. One is also neither prime nor composite.

The number 69 is a composite number. Its factors are 1, 3, 23, and 69. Because 69 has more than two factors, it is a composite number rather than a prime number.

The smallest odd number is 1 and the largest odd number is 999 between 1 to 1000. The consecutive odd numbers follow an algorithm of a difference of 2. Hence, the odd number series in this range will be 1, 3, 5,...
