Yes. Composite numbers can be written as the product of prime factors.

Composite numbers can be written that way.

As for example 98 as a product of its prime factors is: 2*7*7 = 98

the prime factorization

That's a prime factorization.

yes

Yes, by definition!

To identify whether a number is prime or composite, look at its factors. A prime number has exactly two factors: one and itself. A composite number has more factors and can be written as the product of prime numbers. For example: Factors of 17: 1 and 17 so 17 is prime. Factors of 102: 1, 2, 3, 6, 17, 34, 51 and 102 so 102 is composite. It can be expressed as the product of prime numbers by prime factoring: 2 x 3 x 17

Yes. Do a factor tree to find the prime factors. Then write down all of those times together equals your original number.e.g. 12=6*2=2*2*3=which is written as two squared*3
