**Reiny**, Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 6:26pmI stary with an obvious prime

225 = 5 * 45, now another 5

= 5*5*9

= 5*5*3*3

**Anonymous**, Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 6:30pmokay, so if you had to find it of 500, it would be:

500=5*100

5*10*10

5*5*2*5*2

the soltion would be

5^3*2^2

did I do this right?
