No, a nonprime number multiplied by a nonprime number will be a nonprime number.

810/30=27

Well.... it actually depends. like 100 divided by 20 is 5 which is a prime. but 200 divided by 50 is four which is four and not a prime number.

No, there are no other even prime numbers. And an odd number + or - 3 is always even Ward

No. For two integers to have a difference of 3, one must be odd and one must be even. The only even prime number is 2. That means the only pairs of prime numbers that have a difference of 3 must be 2 and another number. The only numbers that could have a difference of 3 are -1 and 5. Since -1 is not a prime number, that is not a pair that meets this description. Since 5 is a prime number, the pair of 2 and 5 is the only possible pair of prime numbers that can have a difference of 3.

No.

Nothing can be multiplied to get that number. Ex. 7 is a prime number because nothing x nothing will ever equal 7.

A prime number has exactly two factors, 1 and the number itself. 1 is not a prime number, and the product will be a composite number if any other prime is used as a factor and multiplied by another prime.

2 multiplied by itself 57,885,161 times, less one.

Always.

No. If you multiply two prime numbers, any prime numbers, the result will - by definition - not be a prime number. For example, if you multiply 2 x 3, the result will obviously be divisible by 2 and by 3, and therefore, not be a prime number. By the way, one is not usually considered a prime number.
