It is a composite number.

No they cannot. the factors of prime numbers are 1 and itself. if its factor has a composite number, then the original number would be composite.

When a composite number is expressed as the product of its prime factors, we call that the prime factorization.

Yes. Any composite number can be expressed as a product of prime factors.

1 times number or number times 1

If you mean the product, that's by definition. A composite number has smaller factors. If you multiply two positive integers, none of which is 1, together, then it follows that the product has smaller factors - namely, the numbers you multiplied together.

When a composite number is expressed as a product of its prime factors, the prime factorization of the composite number has been performed.

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

Composite numbers can be written that way.

Yes. To be composite, the first number has at least 2 prime factors, the second number also has at least prime factors; the product of the two will have at least 4 prime factors, so it must be a composite number.

Assuming you are referring to the prime factors of the number, the product of the prime factors of any composite number is equal to the number itself.

a composite number seems a reasonable answer.
