Objectives Recall the meaning and list of prime numbersRecall the meaning and list of prime numbers Understand how to calculate the product of prime factors for a numberUnderstand how to calculate the product of prime factors for a number Use prime factors to show whether a rooted number produces an integer.Use prime factors to show whether a rooted number produces an integer.

Prime Numbers What are prime numbers? Prime numbers are numbers with only two factors, the number itself and 1. It’s useful to remember the first few prime numbers. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, … Obviously the list is infinite, but you should know the first ones. If we divide a number by numbers in this list, we can find its prime factors.

4
Prime Factors An easy way to separate a number into a product of its prime factors is to create a prime factor tree. We try to divide the number by each of the prime numbers in the list and shrink it until it is only made of prime numbers. 60 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, … ② 30 ② 15 ③ ⑤

Example 4 4 We can also do this by using the number’s prime factors.
