Is 1000 prime or composite?

To determine if 1000 is a prime number or a composite number, we simply look at the factors for 1000.

If the factors of 1000 are only 1000 and 1, then we know that 1000 is a prime number. Otherwise, 1000 is a composite number.

To explain better, if 1000 is only divisible by 1 and 1000, then it is a prime number, and if 1000 is divisible by more than 1000 and 1, then it is a composite number.

The factors of 1000 are as follows:

1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 25, 40, 50, 100, 125, 200, 250, 500, 1000
