It is called the prime factorisation (or prime decomposition) of the composite number.
the prime factorization of the number
Prime factorization is writing a composite number as a product of prime numbers.
When a composite number is expressed as the product of its prime factors, we call that the prime factorization.
.1 is not prime, since a prime has exactly two positive divisors.1 is not composite since it cannot be written as the product of primes.The number 1 is not called a prime OR composite number. It is called a f*cking UNIT !
A composite number is basically one that is NOT a prime - a composite number is a product of two or more primes.
A composite number. The product of two primes is sometimes called a semiprime.
A composite number.
When a composite number is expressed as a product of its prime factors, the prime factorization of the composite number has been performed.
