nn every composite number has a unique prime factorization

that is to say 6=2x3 is the same as 6=3x2 this is a unique factorization

that is the fundamental theorem of arithmetics any number if it is not prime can be written uniquely as prime factorization

for that reason we say the primes are the building blocks of mathematics

i forgot to say the answer is no! what is said means there no more that one way

  • xapproachesinfinity
taking into account that if N is composite and a and b are primes such that N=axb is the same as N=bxa so that is one way only
