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

  • math -

    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?
