Recall that the factors of a number are two numbers that multiply to make the number. The factors are the length and width of all the rectangles with area equal to than number. A prime number, like 5, is a whole number greater than 1 whose only factors are 1 and itself. A composite number, like 6, is a number that has more factors than just 1 and itself.
