Prime Factorization

What is prime factorization?

“Prime factorization” is finding which prime numbers multiply to make the original number.

The prime factorization of 5 is 1 × 5. The number 5 is a prime number, because its only factors are 1 and itself.

What is PRIME number?
Some number can only be divided by 1 or the number itself. These numbers are called prime numbers. Eg. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29 etc.

How to find the prime factorization?

Start by dividing the number by the first prime number 2 and continue dividing by 2 until you get a decimal or remainder. Then divide by 3, 5, 7, etc. until the only numbers left are prime numbers.
