d) Non-negative integers~ Natural numbers and zero.
d) Non-negative integers~ Natural numbers and zero

A whole number is a number that is not a fraction, decimal or negative number.
2. What is the definition of divisible?

a) Something that can be divided

b) When something is divisible by that numbers factors

c) A word that describes a factor
b) When something is divisible by that numbers factors

When something is divisible, that's when the factors of that number can divide the number evenly( with no remainder)
3. What is a composite number?

a) When a number has more than two factors

b) When a number isn't divisible

c) When a numbers' factors are 1 and itself

d) When a number is a fraction
• a) When a number has more than two factors
• A composite number has more than two factors. Example: 6. The factors of 6 are 1,2,3 and 6.
4. What does is the definition of GCF?

a) The Greatest Common Factor of two numbers

b) The largest number that is a multiple of two numbers

c) How you find the LCM

d) A step in the process of finding the Prime Factorization of a number
a) The Greatest Common Factor of a number

The GCF is the greatest factor that a pair of numbers has. Example: 30 and 60. The GCF is 10.
5. What is the definition of LCM?

a) The smallest number that a number can be divided by

b) The smallest number that can be a factor

a) A group of numbers that you can find by skip-counting

When you skip-count, let's say by 8's, the number that you start out with is 8. The next number would be 16, also known as the answer to 8*2.
7. What is the definition of prime factorization?

a) A number on a factor tree

b) The multiplication sentence that you get when you break a number down to its' roots using a factor tree

c) The answer to a division problem
b) The multiplication sentence that you get when you break a number dow to it's roots using factor tree

A prime factorization is what you get after you have broken down a number completely to get a multiplication sentence that only has prime numbers.
8. What is a prime number?

a) When a number has only one factor

b) When a number is divisible by 6

c) A problem in which you need to divide fractions

d) A number that only has two factors
d) A number that only has two factors
