Can the positive integer p be expressed as the product of two integers, each of which is greater than 1?

31 < p < 37
p is odd

statement a : can have 32,33,34,35,36 . yes, but there can be multiple values of two integers.

P is odd. 2 * 3 =6, 4 *7 =28, 3 *3 = 9.

(1) is sufficient:

32=16*2
33=11*3
34=17*2
35=7*5
36=18*2

(2) is insufficient:

p=9 can be written as p=3*3
p=7 cannot be written as the product of two integers, each of which being greater than 1 (since 7 is prime)

A for me too. Second statement does not mention if P is positive or negative....that itself answers the question.
