A number that divides evenly into a larger number without a remainder Factor- Lesson 7 - Attachment A

Factors of 12 = For Example... 1,2,3,4,6,12 Lesson 7 - Attachment A

A whole number greater that 1 with only two factors – 1 and itself Prime Number- Lesson 7 - Attachment A

3 is prime For Example... 17 is prime Lesson 7 - Attachment A

So what do you think PRIME FACTORIZATION means? Lesson 7 - Attachment A

Decomposing (breaking down) a composite number into the product of its prime factors

Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic – Every number greater than 1 can be represented only ONE WAY as a product of its prime numbers

This means each number greater than one has only one prime factorization

For Example... 3×2×2 = 3×2 2 4 3 23 2 6 12 22 3×2×2 = 3×2 2 Lesson 7 - Attachment A

For Example... 3×3×2×2 = 3 2 ×2 2 6 6 22 94 36 32 3×3×2×2 = 3 2 ×2 2 33 32 Lesson 7 - Attachment A
