**No the number 16 is not a prime number.**- Sixteen is a
__composite number__. Because 16 has more divisors than 1 and itself.

- Prime factors of number 16 are: 2
- Equcation of 16 is: 2 * 2 * 2 * 2
- The smallest common factor of 16 is number 2
- Highest or greatest common factor GCF of 16 is number 2

- How do you calculate natural number factors? To get the number that you are factoring just multiply whatever number in the set of whole numbers with another in the same set. For example 7 has two factors 1 and 7. Number 6 has four factors 1, 2, 3 and 6 itself.
- It is simple to factor numbers in a natural numbers set. Because all numbers have a minimum of two factors(one and itself). For finding other factors you will start to divide the number starting from 2 and keep on going with dividers increasing until reaching the number that was divided by 2 in the beginning. All numbers without remainders are factors including the divider itself.
- Let's create an example for factorization with the number nine. It's not dividable by 2 evenly that's why we skip it(Remembe 4,5 so you know when to stop later). Nine can be divided by 3, now add 3 to your factors. Work your way up until you arrive to 5 (9 divided by 2, rounded up). In the end you have 1, 3 and 9 as a list of factors.

**About Number 1.**The number 1 is not a prime number, but a divider for every natural number. It is often taken as the smallest natural number (however, some authors include the natural numbers from zero). Your prime factorization is the empty product with 0 factors, which is defined as having a value of 1. The one is often referred to as one of the five most important constants of analysis (besides 0, p, e, and i). Number one is also used in other meanings in mathematics, such as a neutral element for multiplication in a ring, called the identity element. In these systems, other rules can apply, so does 1 + 1 different meanings and can give different results. With 1 are in linear algebra and vectors and one Einsmatrizen whose elements are all equal to the identity element, and refers to the identity map.**About Number 6.**Six is the smallest composite number with two distinct prime factors, and the third triangular number. It is the smallest perfect number: 6 = 1 + 2 + 3 and the faculty of 3 is 6 = 3! = 1 * 2 * 3, which is remarkable, because there is no other three numbers whose product is equal to their sum. Similarly 6 = sqrt(1 ^ 3 + 2 + 3 ^ 3 ^ 3). The equation x ^ 3 + Y ^ 3 ^ 3 + z = 6xyz is the only solution (without permutations) x = 1, y = 2 and z = 3. Finally 1/1 = 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/6. The cube (from the Greek) or hexahedron (from Latin) cube is one of the five Platonic solids and has six equal areas. A tetrahedron has six edges and six vertices an octahedron. With regular hexagons can fill a plane without gaps. Number six is a two-dimensional kiss number.

Prime numbers or primes are natural numbers greater than 1 that are only divisible by 1 and with itself. The number of primes is infinite. Natural numbers bigger than 1 that are not prime numbers are called composite numbers. Primes can thus be considered the basic building blocks of the natural numbers. There are infinitely many primes, as demonstrated by Euclid around 300 BC. The property of being prime (or not) is called primality.

In number theory, the prime number theorem describes the asymptotic distribution of the prime numbers among the positive integers. It formalizes the intuitive idea that primes become less common as they become larger.

Primes are used in several routines in information technology, such as public-key cryptography, which makes use of properties such as the difficulty of factoring large numbers into their prime factors.
