### 3 is a factor of 111.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
A number is considered a factor of another number if it divides the other number without leaving a remainder. In this case, we need to check if 3 is a factor of 111. If we divide 111 by 3, we get 37 with no remainder. Therefore, 3 is a factor of 111.

123

• B.

111

• C.

131

Correct Answer
C. 131
Explanation
131 is the only prime number among the given options. Prime numbers are numbers that are only divisible by 1 and themselves. In this case, 131 is not divisible by any other number except 1 and 131 itself, making it a prime number.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### An even number is divisible by 2.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
An even number is divisible by 2 because by definition, an even number is any integer that is exactly divisible by 2. This means that when an even number is divided by 2, there is no remainder. Therefore, the statement "An even number is divisible by 2" is true.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### An odd number is always divisible by 3.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
This statement is false. An odd number is not always divisible by 3. For example, the number 5 is an odd number but it is not divisible by 3.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Prime number has only one factor.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
A prime number is a number greater than 1 that has only two factors, 1 and itself. Therefore, the given statement is incorrect. A prime number does not have only one factor, but rather exactly two factors.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### 1 is a composite number.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
A composite number is a positive integer greater than 1 that has at least one divisor other than 1 and itself. Since 1 only has itself as a divisor, it is not considered a composite number. Therefore, the statement "1 is a composite number" is false.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### If a number is prime, then it has at least 3 factors.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because a prime number only has two factors, which are 1 and itself. Therefore, it does not have at least 3 factors.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### 2 is always a factor of even number.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
This statement is true because by definition, an even number is any integer that is evenly divisible by 2. Therefore, 2 will always be a factor of any even number.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### If 8 is a factor of a number, then 4 is also a factor.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
If 8 is a factor of a number, it means that the number can be divided evenly by 8 without leaving a remainder. Since 8 is a factor of the number, it implies that the number is divisible by 8. Since 4 is a factor of 8 (as it can be divided evenly by 4), it follows that if 8 is a factor of a number, then 4 is also a factor. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### If 9 is a factor of a number, then 2 is also a factor.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
This statement is false because there is no direct relationship between the factors of a number. Just because 9 is a factor of a number does not mean that 2 will also be a factor. Factors are independent of each other and can vary depending on the specific number.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### If 10 is a factor of a number, then 5 is also a factor.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
If 10 is a factor of a number, it means that the number can be divided evenly by 10 without leaving a remainder. Since 10 is divisible by 5, any number that is divisible by 10 will also be divisible by 5. Therefore, 5 is also a factor of the number. Hence, the statement "If 10 is a factor of a number, then 5 is also a factor" is true.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### If the GCF of two numbers is 1, then the LCM is the product of two numbers.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
When the greatest common factor (GCF) of two numbers is 1, it means that the two numbers do not share any common factors other than 1. In such a case, the least common multiple (LCM) of the two numbers will be the product of the two numbers. This is because the LCM is the smallest multiple that both numbers share, and since they do not have any common factors other than 1, their LCM will be their product. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### If the GCF of 2 numbers is odd, then both numbers are _____.

• A.

Even

• B.

Odd

• C.

Sometimes even, sometimes odd

Correct Answer
C. Sometimes even, sometimes odd
Explanation
If the GCF (Greatest Common Factor) of two numbers is odd, it means that there is at least one odd factor that is common to both numbers. This implies that both numbers must have at least one odd factor in common. However, it is still possible for both numbers to have additional factors that are even and not common between them. Therefore, in this case, both numbers can be sometimes even and sometimes odd.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### If the GCF of 2 numbers is even, then both numbers are _____.

• A.

Even

• B.

Odd

• C.

Sometimes even, sometimes odd

Correct Answer
A. Even
Explanation
If the greatest common factor (GCF) of two numbers is even, it means that both numbers have at least one common factor that is even. This implies that both numbers must be divisible by 2, making them even numbers. Therefore, the correct answer is "Even".

Rate this question:

• 15.

### The GCF of 2 numbers is always ______ their LCM.

• A.

Less than

• B.

Greater than

• C.

Equal to

Correct Answer
A. Less than
Explanation
The GCF (Greatest Common Factor) of two numbers is always less than their LCM (Least Common Multiple). This is because the GCF represents the largest number that divides both numbers evenly, while the LCM represents the smallest number that is a multiple of both numbers. Since the GCF is a factor of both numbers, it will always be smaller than the LCM, which includes all the common factors and any additional factors. Therefore, the GCF is always less than the LCM.

Rate this question:

• 16.
