Find the prime factors of 144. # Factor 144 # 144 = 12 x 12 # 12 can be written as 4 x 3 # Therefore, 144 = 4x3 x 4x3

# 4 can be written as 2 x 2 # Therefore 144 = 2x2 x 3 x 2x2 x 2

# Hence, putting them in numerical order, 144 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3
The Prime Factors of 144 are 2, 3

The way to find the prime factors of a number is to identify any obvious numbers that it divides by. In this case, we have 144 which should be known as 122. Thus we can say the prime factors are just twice whatever the prime factors of 12 are. 12 is 2x2x3. Thus we can say the prime factors of 144 are 2, 2, 2, 2, 3 and 3.
you mean prime numbers that go (can be divided evenly) into144?

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials
