A number which has exactly two factors. example 2, 3, 5.
A number which has more than two factors. Example 4, 6, 8.

No. 1 is neither prime nor composite because it has only 1 factor.
Is Every whole/integer no. rational ?

Fundamental Theorem of Arithmatic
Every composite number can be expressed as a product of primes, and this factorisation is
unique, apart from the order in which the prime factors occur.
Correct proof of Fundamental Theorem of Arithmatic
Correct proof of Fundamental Theorem of Arithmatic was given by Carl Friedrich Gauss.
Relation of 2 numbers with their LCM and HCF
LCM × HCF = Product of numbers
Theorem on Prime numbers and factors

a is a positive integer.
