Not necessarily. The prime factorization of the composite number 10 is 2 x 5. Composite numbers have three or more factors.

105 is a composite number because it has more than 2 factors

No.No.

No. Every composite number has one unique prime factorization. You can write it with or without exponents, but it's still the same prime factorization.

A prime number has no factors other than 1 and the number itself. If prime factorization of a number reveals one or more additional prime factors, the number is a composite.

Prime factorization, no.

Each composite number has its own unique prime factorization. The largest number in that factorization would be the largest prime factor. It will never be more than half of the original number.

Prime factorizations are unique. If you change the prime factorization, you change the number.

75 is composite and the prime factorization is 3 x 5 x 5.composite

Composite numbers have more than two factors some of which are prime factors but prime numbers themselves have only two factors. A prime number has only 2 factors which are itself and one A composite number has more than 2 factors

no, for example the prime factorization of 4 is,{2,2} it only has two factors and one unique factor 2
