# Is 4206 is a Composite number

## Is 4206 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 4206 is composite or not first we have to find its factors.

### Factors of 4206:

• If we have taken numbers from 1, 2, 3…for checking factors of 4206 we found that 4206 has factors 1, 2, 3, 6, 701, 1402, 2103 and 4206. Hence, we must say that 4206 is a composite number.
• Thus, 4206 is the composite number.
• If we multiply 4206 by 1, 2, 3 then we get the multiples of 4206 which are 4206, 8412 and so on.

• 4206 has more than two factors which are 1, 2, 3, 6, 701, 1402, 2103 and 4206 and hence it is the composite number.
• 4206 is the even composite number and it is not the perfect square also.
• If we divide 4206 by, 1, 2, 3, 6, 701, 1402, 2103 and 4206 then we get remainder as zero. Hence, 1, 2, 3, 6, 701, 1402, 2103 and 4206 are the factors of 4206.

### Note:

• 4206 is not the perfect square.
• Factors of 4206: 1, 2, 3, 6, 701, 1402, 2103 and 4206
• Prime factors of 4206: 2, 3, 701

### Conclusion:

• 4206 is the composite number which has factors, 1, 2, 3, 6, 701, 1402, 2103 and 4206
• And hence, 4206 is not the prime number.
