# Is 734 is a Composite number

## Is 734 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 734 is composite or not first we have to find its factors.

### Factors of 734:

• If we have taken numbers from 1, 2, 3…for checking factors of 734, we found that 734 has factors 1, 2, 367 and 734. Hence, we must say that 734 is a composite number.
• Thus, 734 is the composite umber.
• If we multiply 734 by 1, 2, 3 then we get the multiples of 734 which are 734, 1468 and so on.

• 734 has more than two factors which are 1, 2, 367 and 734 and hence it is the composite number.
• 734 is the even composite number and it is not the perfect square also.
• If we divide 734 by 1, 2, 367 and 734 then we get remainder as zero. Hence, 1, 2, 367 and 734 are the factors of 734.

### Note:

• 734 is not the perfect square.
• Factors of 734: 1, 2, 367 and 734
• Prime factors of 734: 2, 367

### Conclusion:

• 734 is the composite number which has factors 1, 2, 367 and 734
• And hence, 734 is not the prime number.
