### Theory:

A composite number is defined as a number having more than two factors.
Example:
Factors of $$9$$ are $$1$$, $$3$$ and $$9$$. Therefore it is a composite number.

Factors of $$14$$ are $$1$$, $$2$$, $$7$$, and $$14$$. Therefore it is a composite number.

Seven consecutive composite numbers less than $$100$$:

$$89$$ and $$97$$ are the prime numbers. $$90$$, $$91$$, $$92$$, $$93$$, $$94$$, $$95$$, $$96$$ lies in between $$89$$ and $$97$$. All these numbers have more than $$2$$ factors. Therefore, all the numbers are consecutive composite numbers.
Important!
• $$1$$ is neither prime nor composite number.
• Any whole number greater than $$1$$ is either a prime or composite number.
