A
composite number is a
natural number larger than
1 that is not a
prime number. The first ten composite numbers are:
- 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 18.
A composite number which has precisely three distinct prime factors is called a sphenic number.
The ten first sphenic numbers are:
- 30; which is also 11-agonal by polygonality and bracketed by twin primes
- 42; which is bracketed by twin primes
- 66; which is also triangular, hexagonal, 23-agonal and a palindrome
- 70; which is also pentagonal and 13-agonal
- 78
- 102; which is bracketed by twin primes
- 105; which is also 12-agonal
- 110
