# What Is A Composite Number

One of the first things that you will notice about a stock is what is a composite number? It may be a number that you have seen before in a chart, but you will also see it on stock quotes. In fact, the term “composite number” was probably coined in 1997 by an expert on equities, Dr. Price. It defines any number where all the digits can be multiplied without reducing the total number to one. It is a common feature on graphs of price changes, especially those that show the stock price versus a time scale.

All the prime number independent natural numbers that aren’t prime numbers are composite numbers because they can be multiplied by more than one prime number. For instance, 6 is prime number wise because it can be multiplied by 5, 1 and 3, like: 6(p) + 3(q) = 10. Similarly, the prime factors from each prime number are: I – 1, o – infinity, sigma – one, at – times the next prime number, e – the next prime number. These factors are used as a basis to determine what is a composite number when adding these prime numbers together. The result is a composite number that has a repeating pattern.

A composite number that has a repeating pattern and is a prime factorised number is called a “positive integers”. Positive integers are the largest numbers that have no repeating patterns. What is a composite number with a positive integers component can also be called a “negative integers” because they have a repeating pattern, but the largest number that doesn’t have a repeating pattern to it is called a “zero” because it has no prime factors to multiply. So, we have one type of what is a composite number and another type of what is a prime number.

The first factor of what is a composite number is the number of prime numbers that make up the composite. This is actually not a hard and fast rule because many composite numbers have as many prime numbers as there are positive integers or as many negative integers as there are prime numbers. For instance, the number 13 is a composite number that has one prime number and one negative numeral. Therefore, the prime factors from this prime number and this negative numeral will have to be different in order to come up with a prime factorised number. There are no hard and fast rules for what is a composite number with prime factors and a negative numeral.

The second factor is the size of the number. If the size of the number is a big one like say a hundred, then the factor that makes them composite will have to be a bigger number. In other words, it will be easier for what is a composite number to be divisible. If the size of the number is a small one, like say a ten, then the factor that makes them composite will have to be a smaller number.

The third factor that makes a number divisable by what is a composite number is if the prime factors of the number are all positive integers. In other words, if the numbers are all positive, then there is only one divisor that can make the number divisable by what is a composite number. In the case where the number is a sum, then the factor that makes the numbers sum to a positive number is the size of the numbers themselves, multiplied together. So, the larger the numbers get, the smaller the divisors get. So, it doesn’t matter if the numbers are positive or not, if they are too small to get a prime factorize, then they will be divisable by what is a composite number anyway.

The fourth factor that will affect what is a composite number is if the factors of a prime number are all primes. Then again, if the factors are all primes, then the size of the number that makes the divisor will have to be a relatively prime number as well. So, it doesn’t matter if the prime number is a large one, if the size of the prime number that makes the divisor is a relatively prime number, then the divisable number will be divisible by what is a composite number anyway.

So, it isn’t that difficult to identify prime numbers if you study how composite numbers work. All in all, there aren’t that many factors that will affect what is a composite number. So, the only factors that you really need to know about are the size of the numbers and their primes, which should be fairly simple.
