why is 51 a composite number?

8 Answers

  • A prime number is a number that does not have any multiples beside itself, whereas composite numbers have other multiples that make up the number. In this case,

    3 x 17 = 51, which is why it is composite.

  • A Composite Number

  • composite number is defined as numbers with factors other than 1 and itself..

    since 3*17=51..

    51 is a composite #.. 😉

  • 17 * 3 = 51

  • Erica said that 51 is a composite number. Jimmy said 51 is a prime number. Who is right? How do you know?

  • Yes, it’s not prime because 17 x 3 = 51.

  • It can be divided by 17 , 3 times!! 🙂

  • Because you touch yourself at night.
