EXAMPLE 2 Identifying Prime and Composite Numbers Write all the factors of the number and tell whether it is prime or composite. Number Factors Prime or Composite? a 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 composite b 1, 3, 13, 39 composite c 1, 43 prime d 1, 2, 4, 19, 38, 76 composite e 1, 149 prime f 1, 11, 121 composite

EXAMPLE 3 Writing Prime Factorization ANSWER Using exponents, the prime factorization of 450 is 2 • 32 • 52

4
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 6. 24 Tell whether the number is prime or composite. If it is composite, write its prime factorization using exponents. Composite; It has positive factors other then 1 and itself. ANSWER Using exponents, the prime factorization of 24 is 23 • 3

5
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 7. 51 Tell whether the number is prime or composite. If it is composite, write its prime factorization using exponents. Composite; It has positive factors other then 1 and itself. ANSWER Using exponents, the prime factorization of 51 is 3 • 17

6
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 8. 73 Tell whether the number is prime or composite. If it is composite, write its prime factorization using exponents. ANSWER Prime; only positive factors are 1 and itself.
