# Is 662 is a Composite number

## Is 662 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 662 is composite or not first we have to find its factors.

### Factors of 662:

• If we have taken numbers from 1, 2, 3…for checking factors of 662, we found that 662 has factors 1, 2, 331 and 662. Hence, we must say that 662 is a composite number.
• Thus, 662 is the composite umber.
• If we multiply 662 by 1, 2, 3 then we get the multiples of 662 which are 662, 1324 and so on.

• 662 has more than two factors which are 1, 2, 331 and 662 and hence it is the composite number.
• 662 is the even composite number and it is not the perfect square also.
• If we divide 662 by 1, 2, 331 and 662 then we get remainder as zero. Hence, 1, 2, 331 and 662 are the factors of 662.

### Note:

• 662 is not the perfect square.
• Factors of 662: 1, 2, 331 and 662
• Prime factors of 662: 2, 331

### Conclusion:

• 662 is the composite number which has factors 1, 2, 331 and 662
• And hence, 662 is not the prime number.
