Prime Number Definition:

- A whole number larger than 1
- Only divisible by itself and 1

Composite Number Definition:

- A whole number larger than 1
- Divisible by some number other than itself or 1

Neither Prime nor Composite:

- 0 is not prime or composite
- 1 is not prime or composite

Finding the Prime Factorization of a Whole Number:

Composite Numbers:

- Find any two factors (excluding the number and 1)
- Check each of the two factors to determine if they are prime
- Build a list that contains each prime factor
- For any composite factor, repeat the steps until all factors are prime
