256 = 28

The numbers below 500 having the most prime factors are 256 and 384 with eight prime factors each. Prime factorization is 256=2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2 and 84=2x2x2x2x2x2x2x3.

The factors of 256 are 2, 2, 17, 8, 16, 92, 64, 128, and 256.The factor pairs of 256 are 1 x 256, 2 x 128, 4 x 64, 8 x 32, and 16 x 16.The prime factors of 256 are 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, and 2.The only distinct prime factor (listing each prime factor only once) is 2.The prime factors of 256 are 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x (or 28).

The factors of 256 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, and 256. Prime factors of 256 are 28. 256 = 28 so any splitting of this into two groups will work:

The factors of 256 are: 1 2 4 8 16 32 64 128 256

The factors of 256 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, and 256. Prime factors of 256 are 28. 256 = 28 so any splitting of this into two groups will work:

factors: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 prime factors: 2(9)

1 x (2)8

As a product of its prime factors: 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 = 256 or as 2^8 = 256

A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite. 256 is composite.
