A number is written with the following factorization:2exponet is 3 multiplied 4 multplied 5.
is this factorization a prime factorization?please explain to me or why not?if its not correct,please give me the correct prime factorization of the number

If you mean 2^3 * 4 * 5
no, that is not a prime factorization, since 4 is not a prime.
Factor 4 and fold its prime factors into the total.
