What is prime factorization of 5125?
Prime factorization is finding the factors of a number that are all prime. Here's how you do it: Find 2 factors of your number. Then look at your 2 factors and determine if o…ne or both of them is not prime. If it is not a prime factor it. Repeat this process until all your factors are prime. Here's an example: Find the prime factors of the number 84:84/ \42 x 2 (84 is 42 times 2)/ \21 x 2 (42 is 21 times 2)/ \7 x 3 (21 is 7 times 3)(7 and 3 are both prime, so we stop!) So the prime factors of 84 are 7 x 3 x 2 x 2. (MORE)
All composite numbers can be expressed as unique products of prime numbers. This is accomplished by dividing the original number and its factors by prime numbers until all the… factors are prime. A factor tree can help you visualize this. Example: 210 210 Divide by two. 105,2 Divide by three. 35,3,2 Divide by five. 7,5,3,2 Stop. All the factors are prime. 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210 That's the prime factorization of 210. (MORE)
All numbers have factors. Some factors are prime numbers. These are prime factors. A factor string where all the factors are prime numbers is called a prime factorization.
