All whole numbers except for -1, 0 and 1 have at least one prime factor.
4 is a factor of 36, but it is not a prime number.
No. 10 is not a prime number, which means it cannot be a prime factor. It can be a factor, but not a prime factor.
a factor is a factor , a prime number is a prime number, but a prime factor is a factor which is a prime number. it has to depend on what number number. exp 13 is a prime number
All composite numbers can be expressed as unique products of prime numbers. This is accomplished by dividing the original number and its factors by prime numbers until all the factors are prime. A factor tree can help you visualize this. Example: 210 210 Divide by two. 105,2 Divide by three. 35,3,2 Divide by five. 7,5,3,2 Stop. All the factors are prime. 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210 That's the prime factorization of 210.
Because 0 has EVERY number as a factor(0*X). A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite.
No, neither are primes. 1 has only 1 factor (not two, and therefore isn't prime), while 0 has an infinite amount (and so definitely isn't prime).
9 is not a prime factor, but it does have one prime factor, which is three. Prime factors are factors of a number that are prime.
A prime factor is a factor that is a prime number. 3 is a prime factor of 12. 4 is a composite factor of 12.
0 has every number as a factor. A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite.
No. It is a prime number, so its only factors are 1 and 3.
