For instance, you cannot multiply any whole number by anything other than 3 to get to 3. It’s as simple as 1 x 3 Equals 3! A composite number, however, is defined as “A whole number that can be created by multiplying other whole numbers.” For instance, multiplying 2 and 2 can result in the number 4.
