# Composite Numbers: Definition, List 1 to 100, Examples, Types & More

Composite Numbers are the ones that have more than two factors. So, let us explain this by taking an example – 20, twenty can be written as 20 = 1x2x2x5. So the number of factors of 20 is 4 which is more than two, hence we can call 20 as a Composite Numbers.

Another definition can be given as – “All Natural Numbers which are not Prime Numbers are Composite Numbers” as they can be divided by more than two numbers.

## How To Find Composite Numbers?

To check whether a number is composite or not you must know the divisibility of numbers or factorisation method. For example, 44, is a composite because it is divisible by 1, 2, 4, 11, 22, and 44.

### Types Of Composite Numbers

There are only two types of Composite numbers:

1. Composite Odd Numbers or Odd Composite Numbers
2. Composite Even Numbers or Even Composite Numbers

Even Composite Numbers

Numbers having more than two factors that are divisible by 2 or has 2 as one of their factors are called Even Composite. Example: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 50, 444, 98989898.

Odd Composite Numbers

Numbers with more than two factors that are not divisible by 2 or do not have 2 as one of their factors are called Odd Composite. Example: 9, 15, 21, 177, 207, 527, 777, 981.
