The prime factorization of 216 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3. To make things shorter, this can also be written with exponents: 23 x 33
The concept of "prime factorization" is used for integers. It doesn't make sense to use it for fractions or decimals.
The prime factors of a number by multiplying each other. You can also use exponents. a prime factorization is when you divide a number and see what all of the prime (odd) numbers make up that number. EX. 9 / \ 3 3 then you would circle the 3's because they are prime.
7,700 = 22 × 52 × 7 × 11 to find it you can make a factor tree. Start with dividing the number by 2 and then again by 2. Next try 3, it does not work, so try 5 and then again. Keep going and you will have a factor tree that gives you the prime factorization.
Prime Factorization is finding which prime numbers multiply together to make the original number.
by using a prime factor tree
Prime factorization is the finding which prime number multiply to get to make the original number. Factors of 4: 1, 2, 4 Prime Factorization: 2 2 x 2 = 4
I define prime factorization as "expressing a given number as the product of its prime factors." I don't know how to make it easier than that.
Exponents don't help you factor, they help make the factorization more concise. Example: The prime factorization of 1296 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3. If you write that as 24 x 34, it's easier to read.
Let ask you this.....what factors make up the number 19 when you multiply? Is there any? Now figure out what your answer is.
Numbers cannot "make" another number prime. If you are looking for the prime factorization of 56, it is 23 * 7.
