**Prime Factorisation Factor Trees**

2
What’s It All About? You are going to learn: How to write a number as the product of its prime factors. What skills should you have already? You need to know what it means for a number to be a prime number or a factor. You need sound multiplication skills.

3
**Example 1 Write 56 as a product of its prime factors.**

List the first few prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19... 56 2 is a prime number and a factor of 56 so 2 is a prime factor of 56. Is 28 a prime factor? 2 28 This is called a factor tree. All the red digits are prime factors of 56. 2 No, so repeat the process for 28. 14 2 7 56 is an even number so can be written as 2 something... A product is the result of multiplying. 56 = 2 2 2 7

4
**Example 2 Write 90 as a product of its prime factors.**

Draw a factor tree: 90 List the first few prime numbers: Is 45 a prime factor? 2 45 No, so repeat the process for 45. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19... 5 9 90 is an even number. 45 is not an even number. 3 This is not the only possible factor tree, but any factor tree should give the same end result! 3 45 is in the 5 times table. 90 = 2 3 3 5

5
**Example 3 Write 420 as a product of its prime factors.**

Draw a factor tree: 420 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19... 2 210 2 105 5 21 3 7 420 = 2 2 5 3 7

6
Your Turn Draw a factor tree and use it to write each of the following as the product of its prime factors. 72 80 75 648 108
