What is the prime factorization of 1,050

Let's start by factoring out the obvious 50.

1050 = 50 * 21
The prime favors of 50 are 5*5*2
The prime factors of 21 are 3*7

The prime factors of 1050 are therefore
2*3*5*5*7

You could have done this problem other ways, but you'd get the same answer.

1050/2=525
525/5=105
105/5=21
21/7=3

all primes are 2,3,5,5,7

Have you ever tried factor trees?
1050
50 21
5 10 7 3
5 2

Factors: 5 5 2 7 3
These are fairly quick. Good luck!

do now and don't care
