What is the prime factoization for 54 but I need to know how it looks like in a "Factorization Tree"
Thanks Please Help!!!

    okay, first you have to start with the number 54, then you have to think of two multiples of that number, if one is prime, circle it, then continue down the line, and when you can go anymore, take the circled numbers and but them into a multiplication sentence, it looks like this:
    54
    / /
    (2) 27
    / /
    (3) 9
    / /
    (3) (3)
    3^3*2
    above is ur answer it is 3 to the third power because there are 3 threes. (the perenthesis represent a circle.)
    Hope this helps!!
