I Can determine whether a number is prime or composite.

Step It Out
1. A landscaper is buying palm trees. She wants to have several ways to plant the trees in equal rows. Should she buy 10 trees or 11 trees?

A. Show all the possible area models for 10 and 11. Label each area model with the factors it shows.

B. Identify the number that has more factors.
10 has ___ factors. 11 has ___ factors.
The number ___ has more factors.
C. The landscaper should buy _____ trees.
The landscaper should buy 10 trees.

Explanation:
Number of trees = 10 or 11.
Factors of 10:
1 × 10 = 10.
2 × 5 = 10.
Factors of 11:
1 × 11 = 11.
She wants to have several ways to plant the trees in equal rows.
=> 2 rows × 5 plants = 10 plants.

A prime number is a whole number greater than 1 that has exactly two factors, 1 and itself. A composite number is a whole number that has more than two factors.

Step It Out
2. Are the numbers 42 and 43 prime or composite?
A. Determine if each number is divisible by any number other than 1 and itself.

• 42 is even. So, ___ is divisible by 2.
• 43 is odd. So, ___ is not divisible by 2 or any multiple of 2.
• The sum of the digits in 43 is not divisible by 3. So, 43 is not divisible by ___ or any multiple of ___.

• 43 does not end in the digit 0 or 5. So, 43 is not divisible by ___ or any multiple of ___.
• 43 is not divisible by 7, 11, 13, 17, or 19.

B. Identify each number as prime or composite.

• 42 is divisible by a number other than 1 and itself.
So, 42 is a ___ number.
• 43 is only divisible by 1 and itself. So, 43 is a ___ number.
42 is composite number and 43 is a prime number because 42 has many factors and divisible by 2 yet 43 has one and itself as factors and cannot be divisible by 2.Explanation:
Numbers 42 and 43 prime or composite

Turn and Talk Why do you need to know that 43 is not divisible by 7, 11, 13, 17, or 19 to know for sure whether 43 is prime or composite?
It is important to know that 43 is not divisible by 7, 11, 13, 17, or 19 to know for sure whether 43 is prime or composite because its if is divisible by prime number 7, 11, 13, 17, or 19 then its divisible by all that numbers.
