33772 ends with a 2. Any positive integer ending with 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 - other than 2 itself - is divisible by 2 and so is a composite number. The fact that it has one proper factor is sufficient to establish that it is not a prime. You do not even need to know its factors.

Show me the work to know if 0 is prime or composite?

A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite.

What is the prime factorization of 23?

23 is a prime number so there is no prime factorization. Some consider it to be acceptable to write 1 X 23 in order to show the number is prime, even though 1 is not a prime or composite number.23 is already prime.

How did Euclid prove there is no largest prime?

The proof that there is no largest prime:Assume that there are a finite number of primes for the sake of contradiction. Then, there should be a number P that equals p1p2p3...pn+1. P is either prime or not prime (composite). If it is prime, we just show that P is larger than the largest prime in the list. If it's not prime, it must be composite. Composite always has at least one factor that is prime, but since P is not divisible by any prime in the list, the unknown prime factor(s) must be something not in the list, this also shows that there is a prime larger than the largest prime in the list. Both cases show that no matter how large a list of prime numbers, there will be always at least one larger prime outside of that list.
