**No the number 48 is not a prime number.**- Forty-eight is a
__composite number__. Because 48 has more divisors than 1 and itself.

- Prime factors of number 48 are: 2, 3
- Equcation of 48 is: 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 3
- The smallest common factor of 48 is number 2
- Highest or greatest common factor GCF of 48 is number 3

- 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 4.**Four is linear. It is the first composite number and thus the first non-prime number after one. The peculiarity of the four is that both 2 + 2 = 4 and 2 * 2 = 4 and thus 2^2 = 4. Four points make the plane of a square, an area with four sides. It is the simplest figure that can be deformed while keeping it's side lengths, such as the rectangle to parallelogram. Space let's us arrange equidistantly a maximum of four points. These then form a tetrahedron (tetrahedron), a body with four identical triangular faces. Another feature of the four is the impossibility of an algebraic equation of higher degree than four square roots using simple arithmetic and basic operations dissolve.**About Number 8.**The octahedron is one of the five platonic bodies. A polygon with eight sides is an octagon. In computer technology we use a number system on the basis of eight, the octal system. Eight is the first real cubic number, if one disregards 1 cube. It is also the smallest composed of three prime number. Every odd number greater than one, raised to the square, resulting in a multiple of eight with a remainder of one. The Eight is the smallest Leyland 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.
