No because 137 is a prime number whose only factors are itself and one

Answer For YOU!293 is a prime number and prime numbers are numbers that are divisible by itself and 1. Rember 1 is not a prime number.1 is not prime because a prime number has to factors 1 and itself but one is its self there for it only has one factor.Correct! 293 is a PRIME number. Its factors are 293 and 1. If you are looking of prime factors, it is not here.

Any number that contains only two factors which are itself and one is a prime number all other numbers that have more than two factors are composite numbers.

Aside from itself and one, the only positive integer factors of 87 are 3 and 29.

It is neither. Prime numbers have two factors, which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers have at least 3 factors, which are 1, itself, and at least one other factor. One does not fit either definition, since the only factor of 1 is 1.(It used to be considered a prime number, but they changed the rules sometime in the mid-20th century.)
