A factor can or cannot be a prime number Ex: 2 is the factor of all other even numbers its a prime number but 9 is a factor of 18 and its not a prime number A prime is a factor but a factor being a prime number varies

No prime number only has one factor. Each prime number has itself and 1 as factors. Now, the number 1 of course has only one factor, but it is technically not a prime number.

71 is a prime number and its only prime factor is itself. Its only other factor is 1, which is not a prime number.none because 71 is prime71 is a prime number and its only prime factor is itself. Its only other factor is 1, which is not a prime number.none because 71 is prime

The answer depends on whether or not the prime number is a factor of the other number.If the prime number is a factor of the other number then the GCF is the prime, otherwise the GCF is 1.

103 is a prime number. The only two factors of a prime number are 1 and itself. The only factor pair of 103 is 1 x 103. There is only one factor pair of a prime number. The proper factors of 103 are only 1 or, if the definition you are using excludes 1, there are none. The only prime factor of 103 is 103. There is only one prime factor of a prime number - itself. The distinct prime factor (listing each prime factor only once) of 103 is also 103.
