I have the same question as Sally:
What is the prime factorization of 225?
Or, just how do you find prime factorization???
Thanks.

I stary with an obvious prime
225 = 5 * 45, now another 5
= 5*5*9
= 5*5*3*3

okay, 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?
