1.) Is it possible for a composite number to have more than one prime factorization? Is it possible for a number to have no prime factors? Why?

2.) Give an example of how prime factorization could be used in the real world.

Thank you to anyone that takes the time to answer this :))

    1a. No, because after Prime Factorization the resulting numbers cannot be factored further.

    b. Yes, because numbers that are divisible evenly by one only(11,13) cannot be factored.
