Prime, Composite, Even, and Odd Numbers

A prime number is a number that has no other divisors other than itself and 1. 13 is a prime number since nothing can divide 13, except 1 and 13. A composite number is a number that is not prime. 16 is not a prime number, but a composite number since 16 can be divided by 2,4, and 8.
An even number is a number that is divisible by 2. If a number is not divisible by 2, it is odd. 5 is an odd number because 2 does not go into 5. 8 is an even number since 8 ÷ 2 = 4
