• And numbers having more than these two factors are the composite numbers.
• To check whether the number 3794 is composite or not first we have to find its factors.

### Factors of 3794:

• If we have taken numbers from 1, 2, 3…for checking factors of 3794, we found that 3794 has factors 1, 2, 7, 14, 271, 542, 1897 and 3794. Hence, we must say that 3794 is a composite number.
• Thus, 3794 is the composite number.
• If we multiply 3794 by 1, 2, 3 then we get the multiples of 3794 which are 3794, 7588 and so on.

• 3794 has more than two factors which are 1, 2, 7, 14, 271, 542, 1897 and 3794 and hence it is the composite number.
• 3794 is the even composite number and it is not the perfect square also.
• If we divide 3794 by, 1, 2, 7, 14, 271, 542, 1897 and 3794 then we get remainder as zero. Hence, 1, 2, 7, 14, 271, 542, 1897 and 3794 are the factors of 3794.

### Note:

• 3794 is not the perfect square.
• Factors of 3794: 1, 2, 7, 14, 271, 542, 1897 and 3794
• Prime factors of 3794: 2, 7, 271

### Conclusion:

• 3794 is the composite number which has factors, 1, 2, 7, 14, 271, 542, 1897 and 3794
• And hence, 3794 is not the prime number.
