Are prime factors and prime factorization the same?
No. Prime factors are the numbers that make up other numbers, but they have to be prime. Prime factorisation is the process of finding the prime numbers that create a number. This is when you multiply the prime numbers together and the product is the original number. For example: 20 5x4 5x2x2 This process is called prime factorisation. In this case, the prime numbers are 2, 2, and 5.
