PRIME NUMBER: A positive integer greater than "1" that can only be divided exactly (that is, without a remainder) by itself and 1.

COMPOSITE NUMBER: A positive integer greater than "1" that can be divided exactly by some other integer other than itself and 1.

FACTOR of an INTEGER: A whole number that can divide exactly into that integer.
