SOLUTION Field Trip EXAMPLE 1 Writing Factors of a Number A class of 36 students is on a field trip at the aquarium. The teacher wants to break the class into groups of the same size. Find all the possible group sizes by writing all the factors of 36. 36 = 1 36 = 2 18 = 3 12 = 4 9 = 6 6 = 9 4 36 isn’t divisible by 5. Skip to 6. 36 isn’t divisible by 7 and 8. Skip to 9. Stop when the factors repeat. ANSWER The possible group sizes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 36.

SOLUTION EXAMPLE 2 Identifying Prime and Composite Numbers Tell whether the number is prime or composite. a. 56 b. 11 a. The factors of 56 are 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 14, 28, and 56. So, 56 is composite. b. The only factors of 11 are 1 and 11. So, 11 is prime.

GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 and 2 Write all the factors of the number. 1. 35 ANSWER 1, 5, 7, and 35 2. 32 ANSWER 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 3. 65 ANSWER 1, 5, 13, and 65 4. 23 ANSWER 1, 23

GUIDED PRACTICE Tell whether the number is prime or composite. 1. 47 ANSWER prime 2. 81 ANSWER composite 3. 34 ANSWER composite 4. 67 ANSWERprime for Example 1 and 2
