The coach of a baseball team separates the players into groups for drills. Each group has the same number of players. Is the total number of players on baseball team prime or composite? Explain.

I don't thick this will help because this was posted two years ago but it is composite because if there is say 60 people on the team and he divided the groups amongst three people in each group then it would be 20 groups now that isn't prime see so it would be the same thing if the basketball coach separates the team into 10 groups and there's 60 people on that team that's not a prime number that would be a composite number so the answer is composite A prime number would be there's eight people in each group and he separates them into a group so that means that They would be 64 people on that team Now the book that I'm looking at right now doesn't tell you the people on that team and how much people there are on that team but it says there is a different amount from The number of teams to the number of people in the team see there's like eight people in the team and there is for groups so that means two people in each group so That means that the answer would have to be composite and not prime hope this helped somebody

The total number of players is equal to the number in each group by the number of groups, so it must be composite

Say that there is 25 people on the team then if there was 5 people on each team then there would be 5 groups of 5 and that would make it a composite number.

Its Composite because if you need to make each group have an even number of people, the number of people needs to be even (AKA Composite)
