The product of two numbers could be either a composite number or a Prime number. If one of those numbers is 1 and the other is a prime number, the result is that prime number. If neither number is 1, the product of the two numbers will be a composite number. If one of those numbers is 1 and the other is not a prime number, the product will not be a prime number. So, in most cases, it will be a composite number.

Discounting the exception where the two numbers are 1 and some prime, products of two numbers will not result in a prime number. That results because that result, whatever it might be, will be divisible by 2, in addition to 1 and itself. And as it's divisible by two it's not a prime.

So, no, in general a product of two numbers will not be a prime result. ANS.
