What is a prime number?

There are factor trees and ladders and rainbows and fireworks and they're all pretty much the same thing: ways to notate the process of finding the prime factorization of a given number. They differ in where they write the number and where the factors end up. In a factor tree, write the original number at the top and the bottommost branch will be the prime factorization. In a factor rainbow, write the original number at the bottom and the prime factorization will be the uppermost arc.

24 x 5 = 80

A kilogram is a unit of measurement for mass. It is not a number that can be factorised!

No prime power exists since there are no duplicate prime numbers in the prime factorization.

No. Every composite number has one unique prime factorization. You can write it with or without exponents, but it's still the same prime factorization.

To write a composite whole number as the product of its prime factors is to write its prime factorization.
