factorization is finding out all the prime numbers which
when multiplied result in the original number.
Factor Tree Method
factor tree is a tool that helps us to break down the
given number into its prime factors. In this method we factorize the given
number and we only stop when we can’t find factors any more.
factorization is the list of prime numbers or prime factors that we would
multiply together to create that given number.
Example 1: Find Prime Factor of 108.
find out 2 factors of the given number 108. Here two factors are 6 and 18. Now
look and determine whether these two factors are prime number or not. If it is
not a prime number then factor it again. Repeat this process until we get all our
ends are all the prime factors of the original number. Here we see the factor
tree of 108 which reveals that 108 = 2 ×
3 × 2 × 3 × 3.
Example 2: Find Prime Factor of 392.
Composite number can be written as a
product of its prime factors.
Prime numbers are considered as the basic
building blocks of all numbers.
No, two numbers can have the same prime
factors. Prime factors for every number are unique.
