# Factors of Composite Numbers

This lesson is on factors of composite numbers. Students will write the factors of different numbers.

First, you will copy the worksheet I have included in this lesson. Then, you will explain what a factor is and show the students factors of a composite number before they do the worksheet.

A composite number has more than two factors.

Example: 18 is a composite number.

1 x 18 = 18

3 x 6 = 18

The factors of 18 = 1, 3, 6, and 18.

After you have gone over some examples of factors of composite numbers, then you can pass out the worksheet.
