A number is written with the following factorization: 22 X 3 X 54 X 8 X 112. Is this factorization a prime
factorization? Explain why or why not. If it is not correct, give the correct prime factorization of the
number.

    I didn't know
    I need help please

  2. anime lover

    hopefully i am right...
    No it is not correct because 22,54,8 and 112 aren't prime numbers

  3. Princess

    OK but why

  4. Steve

    so, to get the correct factorization, factor all the non-primes:

    22 * 3 * 54 * 8 * 112
    = 2*11*3*2*3^3*2^3*2^4*7
    = 2^9 * 3^4 * 7 * 11

  5. Princess

    come on

  6. Princess

    so OK

  7. Princess

    Explain why or why not. If it is not correct, give the correct prime factorization of the
    number.

    all of the questions you keep asking have been answered above. I think you need to review what it means to be prime.

    OK bye

    Look Princess, we went through this when you were trying to simplify fractions.

    22 for example is 2 * 11
    2 and 11 can not be factored any further. They are "prime"

    then 44 = 2 * 22
    that is NOT Enough (not prime factors)
    because 22 can be factored as we know
    so
    44 = 2 * 2 * 11 that does it

    now 2*2 is often written as two to the power two
    or
    2 * 2 = 2^2

    so
    44 = 2^2 * 11

    This is not a prime factorization.  2 is prime, so is 3, and 5, as well as 11, but 8 is not prime.  8 can be broken down into 2^3.  
    Plug this back in. 2^2 x 3 x 5^4 x 2^3 x 11^2=2^5 x 3 x 5^4 x 11^2
