__Is 3782 is a composite number or not ?__

- As we already know that, the number having factors 1 and the number itself is the prime number.
- And numbers having more than these two factors are the composite numbers.
- To check whether the number 3782 is composite or not first we have to find its factors.

**Factors of 3782:**

- If we have taken numbers from 1, 2, 3…for checking factors of 3782, we found that 3782 has factors 1, 2, 31, 61, 62, 122, 1891 and 3782. Hence, we must say that 3782 is a composite number.
- Thus, 3782 is the composite number.
- If we multiply 3782 by 1, 2, 3 then we get the multiples of 3782 which are 3782, 7564 and so on.
