# Even vs Odd vs Prime vs Composite Numbers (With Examples)

## |

In mathematics, there are four main types of numbers: even, odd, prime, and composite. Each type of number has its unique properties, and it is essential to distinguish between them.

### Even Numbers

Even numbers are integers that are divisible by 2. This means they can be evenly split into two groups of equal size. Some examples of even numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, etc.

### Odd Numbers

Odd numbers are integers that are not divisible by 2. This means they cannot be evenly split into two groups of equal size. Some examples of odd numbers are 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and so on.

### Prime Numbers

Prime numbers are integers that have exactly two factors: 1 and themselves. This means they cannot be divided by numbers other than 1 and themselves. Some examples of prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, and so on.

### Composite Numbers

Composite numbers are integers that have more than two factors. This means that they can be divided by more than 1 and themselves. Some examples of composite numbers are 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, and so on.

### Examples

Here are some examples of even, odd, prime, and composite numbers:

• Even numbers: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20
• Odd numbers: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19
• Prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29
• Composite numbers: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20

### How to Determine the Type of Number

The type of number can be determined by using the following rules:

• If a number is divisible by 2, it is an even number.
• If a number is not divisible by 2, it is odd.
• If a number has exactly two factors, it is a prime number.
• A number with more than two factors is a composite number.

### Is There Anything Else I Should Know?

Yes, there are a few other things you should know about even, odd, prime, and composite numbers:

• The number 1 is neither even nor odd.
• The number 2 is the only even prime number.
• The number 0 is not a prime number but a composite number.

### Conclusion

Even odd, prime, and composite numbers are all essential concepts in mathematics. It is crucial to distinguish between them to solve mathematical problems and understand mathematical concepts.
