# What the prime factor of 36?

Updated: 8/30/2023 Wiki User

Well, 36 breaks down into 6 and 6. 6 breaks down into 2 and 3. 2 and 3 are prime. Because there are 6 sixes, there are two 2s and two 3s. It sounds complicated, but it isn't. The answer is 2^2 x 3^2, or 2 squared times 3 squared. Or, 2 x 2 x 3 x 3. Wiki User
