What is a Prime Factorization and What is an example?
A prime factorization is the unique way to list any integer greater than 1 as a product of prime numbers. An example of the prime factorization of a composite number is 20=2*2*5 or 20=2^2*5. The prime factorization of a prime number is itself. e.g. 11=11. ...
What is the prime factorization for the number 88?
An easy way to find the prime factorization of a number is to find the lowest prime number that is a divisor of that number, and perform a division. By repeating this process, you collect the prime factorization of your original number. For example: 88 is divisible by 2, which is the lowest prime number we can divide it by. 88/2 = 44 44 is divisble by 2 again 44 / 2 = 22 22 is STILL divisible by 2 22 / 2 = 11 and...
Write 66 as a product of prime factors?
Prime factorization is the finding which prime number multiply to get to make the original number. 66: 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 22, 33, 66 Prime Numbers: 2, 3, 11 Prime Factorization: 2 x 3 x 11 ...

How do you get the prime factorization of 60?
Finding the Prime Factorization of 66 To find the prime factorization of 66, find the lowest prime number that will divide evenly into 66. Since 66 is an even number, that number will be 2. Find the number which when multiplied by 2 equals 66. The number is 33. Write it down like this: 2 X 33 = 66 2 is one of the prime factors of 66, but 33 is a composite number and must be factored. Find the lowest prime...
