In this activity, we will be asking different questions about prime numbers.
Let's recap what prime numbers are.
A prime number is a number greater than 1, that can only be divided by itself and 1.
11 is a prime number - it only has two factors, itself and 1.
11 ÷ 11 = 1
11 ÷ 1 = 11
Composite numbers are non-prime numbers.
Composite numbers are whole numbers.
Composite numbers can be divided by numbers other than itself and 1.
Composite numbers have more than two factors.
For example, 6 is a composite number because it has the factors: 1, 6, 2, 3.
Let's practise identifying different types of numbers in some questions.
