The prime factorization of 16 is: 2 x 8 2 x 2 x 4 2 x 2 x 2 x 2. There is not a pair of prime numbers that make 16.

No. Not even close. Examples: 4+4=8 8+8=16 16+16=32 . . .4, 8, and 16 are not prime numbers.

not 16 as 4 x 4 or 2 x 8 both 19 and 23 are prime numbers

They are: 4*4 = 16

That's a false statement. Both 16 and 64 have one prime factor. 16 can't be the LCM of two prime numbers and 64 can't be the product. If you leave out the word prime, you can use 16 and 4.

The factors of 16 are 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16.The prime factor of 16 is 2.None of them are negative.

If the number is a product of two composite numbers, it must be 16, which is the product of 4 and 4. The prime factors of 16 are 2, 2, 2, and 2. The smallest composite number is 4, so the smallest possible product of two composite numbers is 4 x 4 = 16.

5,5,7 and 7.

40 & 4

Yes for example 5+11 = 16

4 is not prime.

To find the hcf, first split the numbers into their prime factors: 20 = 2x2x5 16 = 2x2x2x2 The next step is to identify any common prime factors. In this case both numbers have 2 and 2 as prime factors. Multiply these together and you get 4. Thus the hcf of 20 and 16 is 4.
