This is simple.....

The primes are 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19.....

The bi-composites with 2 as a factor are:

2*2, 2*3, 2*5, 2*7, 2*11, etc.....

With 3 as a factor:

3*2, 3*3, 3*5, 3*7, 3*11, etc....

> Do every factor have a range in primeproducts?

Clarify. I do not understand what you are asking.

See above.
