No you cannot. You might want to try the factor tree for 27.

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.

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

479 is a prime number. The only factors for this number is 479 and 1.

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