Prime Prime factorization
is a way of simplifying
a composite number
into prime numbers. Prime factors are prime numbers. 36

3x2x2x3 Here is an example of a prime factor tree. Okay, here's how you do it. You now have to
simplify 4 and 6. 2,3,5,7, and 11 are prime numbers. You see, 3 and 2 are
prime. Here is a factor chart. Lets say you want to simplify 24 into prime numbers.
I'm going to use a factor tree. 24

6x4 6 and 4 are factors
of 24. 24

4x6

2x2x2x3 2x2x2x3 is the prime
factorization of 24. Now for some real-life
problems. Skyd has 36 brownies. She wants to cut them into smaller pieces.
But, she wants to be able to cut them up and not have them crumble. She wants to cut them up into small bite-size bits. Here's the answers. 36

3x3x2x2 To put that in Either way, both got you
3x3x2x2 for the answer. exponents, it would be 2 and 3 are both prime. Prime numbers are numbers that have two factors; The factors are one and itself. Therefore, any number that is not even, or not divisible by any number is prime.
All even numbers are composite except for 2. 48
