1 Factors and Prime Factorization

2 Definitions Factors ~ Whole numbers that are multiplied to find a product Factors ~ Whole numbers that are multiplied to find a product Prime Factorization ~ A number written as the product of its prime factors Prime Factorization ~ A number written as the product of its prime factors

3 Factors Begin by listing all of the factors for the number

4 Prime Factorization ~ Factor Tree Keep finding factors until each branch ends at a prime number Prime factorization of 36 is Prime factorization of 36 is

5 Example A Find the prime factorization of 24 Use a factor tree, then write the prime factorization.

6 Example A - Answer Prime Factorization of 24:

7 Answer A ~ Part Prime factorization is the same, so even if using different numbers to do the factor tree, you will still get the same answer Prime factorization is the same, so even if using different numbers to do the factor tree, you will still get the same answer
