    Hello Mrs Cooper

    Here’s my answer

    I have a factor of 3, so I am not a prime number. – The number could be any number in the 3 times tables.

    The sum of my digits equals 6. – Adding together the digits in my number is equal to 6, but the numbers have to have a factor of three too.

    Two of the digits are the same. – Two of the digits in my number have to be the same.

    By looking at 3 numbers that can add up to 6 but only two of them are the same and then checking that they have a factor of three i think the number is 330.

    3+3+0= 6
    330 has a factor of 3
    2 of the digits are the same
