### What is the answer to this maths question write 58 as a product of its prime factors please explain it?

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.

### Why do you say the prime factorization instead a prime factorization?

Saying "The" Instead of "A" The prime factorization is used instead of a prime factorization because there is only one correct prime factorization of any given number. Of course, that refers to composite numbers because prime numbers have no prime factorization. The use of the word "a" implies that more than one prime factorization is possible when it's not. The use of the word "the" signifies that only one prime factorization is possible, though there…
