### What number has only one factor tree?

Every composite number has its own unique tree, so I guess the answer is all numbers have one tree. Perhaps you meant one branch or one factor. Prime numbers only have two factors, one of them is prime, so if you try to do a factor tree with a prime number, it stops the second you write the number down. And then there's one. One only has one factor, so we won't even bother with a tree. We'll call it a factor twig.

### What number is on top of a factor tree?

### What is the factor tree for a composite number?

A factor tree is a way of notating the process of finding the prime factorization of any composite number. Example: 210 210 105,2 35,3,2 7,5,3,2 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210

### Jesse drew a factor tree of a composite number and ended up with 4x4x5x5x3 as the prime factorization What is the correct prime factorization What is the composite number that was factored?

The answer was wrong. The fours should have been factored into 2 * 2. The composite number is 1200.
