understanding primes and composite numbers is to think of them as the product of factors. "2 times 3 equals 6, so 2 and 3 are factors of 6. So, there are two ways to make six 1 times 6, and 2 times 3. I like to think of them as factor pairs. So, with a composite number, you have multiple factor pairs, while with a prime number, you have only one factor pair, one times the number itself.
1 is not prime number because 1 has only 1 factor.
2 is prime number because 2 has two factors like 2 and 1.
3,5,7,11,13,17 are prime numbers because they have only two factors like that number and 1.
So there are many prime numbers who`s have only two factors.1st that number and 2nd 1.
