# Which factors are not included in the prime factorization of a composite number?

**Solution:**

We will use the concepts of prime number, composite number, prime factorization, and factors to solve this.

Let's take an example of a composite number to understand this.

42 can be written as,

42 = 2 × 3 × 7

The prime factors of 42 are 2, 3, and 7. The factors that are not included are 1 and 42 as they are not prime numbers.

Hence, we can say that the number itself and 1 are not included in the prime factorization of a composite number.
