**Prime Numbers and Prime Factorization**

Lesson 3-2

2
Factors Factors are the numbers you multiply together to get a product. For example, the product 24 has several factors. 24 = 1 x 24 24 = 2 x 12 24 = 3 x 8 24 = 4 x 6 SO, the factors are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24

3
**Finding Factors Start with 1 times the number. Try 2, 3, 4, etc.**

When you repeat your factors, cross out the repeat - you’re done at this point. If you get doubles (such as 4 x 4), then you’re done. Repeats or doubles let you know you’re done.

4
**What are the factors of 16? 1 x 16 2 x 8 3 x ?? 4 x 4**

3 is not a factor, so cross it out 4 x 4 doubles = done The factors of 16 are 1,2,4,8,16

5
**What are the factors of 18? 1 x 18 The factors are 1,2,3,6,9,18 2 x 9**

Repeat! Cross it out! We’re done!

6
**What are the factors of 7? The only factors of 7 are 1,7 1 x 7 2 x ??**

This works, but it is a repeat. We are done.

7
**Prime and Composite Numbers**

Prime numbers are numbers that only have two factors: one, and the number itself. EXAMPLES: 3, 5, 7, 11, 31 Composite numbers have more than two factors. EXAMPLES: 6, 15, 18, 30, 100

8
A Product of Primes Every composite number can be expressed as a product of prime numbers. This is called prime factorization.

9
**It can be expressed as a product of primes: 3 x 5**

Example 15 is a composite number. It can be expressed as a product of primes: 3 x 5

10
**To find the prime factorization:**

Divide the number by the first prime number possible. Circle the prime number, and continue with the other factor. Divide the new factor by a prime number. Continue this process until the only numbers you have left are prime numbers.

11
**Remember the Prime Number List:**

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97…

12
**Example: Prime Factorization of 100.**

100 ÷ 2 = 50. Two is the first prime number that goes into 100. Now we deal with the 50. Divide it by 2 to get the next factors. 2 is a prime number, so we are done with it. 2 X 50 25 is not divisible by the first prime, 2. The next prime, 3, does not work either. We must divide by 5 to get a factor. 2 X 25 Both numbers are prime, leaving us with all primes. 5 x 5
