Will an odd number ever have even numbers in its exponential form?

All even numbers have 2 as a factor, but no odd numbers do. The only even number that will appear as a factor in prime factorizations is 2, because it is the only even prime number. Thus, an odd number will not have even numbers in its prime factorization because an odd number is not evenly divisible by 2. The only even numbers that could appear in the exponential form are the exponents. For example 81 is 34. The factor is an odd number - 3, while the exponent is an even number - 4.


Is 10 a prime number or composite?

Prime numbers can ONLY be divided (without a remainder) by themselves and the number 1. No even number can ever be a prime number. The number 10 is an even number and can be divided by 5 (10/5=2) and 2 (10/2=5)

Can prime numbers other than 2 and 5 ever be 3 apart and how?

No. For two integers to have a difference of 3, one must be odd and one must be even. The only even prime number is 2. That means the only pairs of prime numbers that have a difference of 3 must be 2 and another number. The only numbers that could have a difference of 3 are -1 and 5. Since -1 is not a prime number, that is not a pair that meets this description. Since 5 is a prime number, the pair of 2 and 5 is the only possible pair of prime numbers that can have a difference of 3.


Is 4500 prime?

Will the product of any prime numbers greater than one but less than twenty ever be prime?

No. If you multiply two prime numbers, any prime numbers, the result will - by definition - not be a prime number. For example, if you multiply 2 x 3, the result will obviously be divisible by 2 and by 3, and therefore, not be a prime number. By the way, one is not usually considered a prime number.

Can prime numbers other than 2 and 5 ever be 3 apart and why?

If p is a prime number other than 2, then p must be odd (otherwise it would be divisible by 2). It follows that p+3 must then be even and so cannot be prime.
