No, they are not. They share 3 as a factor.

Prime factorization is the finding which prime number multiply to get to make the original number. 66: 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 22, 33 and 66. Prime Factors: 2, 3, 11 2 x 3 x 11 = 66

Divide the number by it's lowest prime factor possible continuosly until you get a one. The numbers will then be the prime factors. For example: Take the number 66. 2 is the smallest prime number and it is a factor of 64. So 66/2 = 33. 33 is not divisible by 2 so we take the next lowest prime factor: 33/3 = 11. 11 is divisible by nothing but itself and so 11 is the next lowest prime factor (remember we always need the answer to remain an integer): 11/11 = 1. Therefore 66 = 2 x 3 x 11.

There is no product of prime numbers building 66. The sum of prime number is doing it: 13 +53 = 66
