They both considered "identity elements". 0 is actually the identity element under addition for the real numbers, since if a is any real number, a + 0 = 0 + a = a. Mathematicians refers to 0 as the additive identity (or better said, the reflexive identity of addition). 1 is a separate and special entity called 'Unity' or 'Identity element'. 1 is actually the identity element under multiplication for the real numbers, since a x 1 = 1 x a = a. Mathematicians refers to 1 as the multiplicative identity (or better said, the reflex identity of multiplication).

# Why 1 and 0 are not prime number nor composite number?

Actually, 1 is composite. As for 0: "Zero has an infinitenumber of divisors (any nonzero whole number divides zero). It cannotbe written as a product of two factors, neither of which is itself, sozero is also not composite. It falls in a class of numbers calledzero-divisors. These are numbers such t ( Full Answer )

# Can you make a prime number from the numbers 1 0 8?

A prime number is only divisible by 1 and itself. If all three digits have to be used then any number formed from them is divisible by 9 as the sum of the digits = 9.
