1. Is it possible for a composite number to have more than one prime factorization?
2. Is it possible for a number to have no prime factors? Why?
3. Give an example of how prime factorization could be used in the real world

Damon
1. I can not imagine how.
2. no, the lowest is itself and one
3. How many ways can you divide up 12 cookies? 
Ali
thank you, Damon but is there any way i can get it in a way that is more advanced?

Damon
LOL, the simpler the more advanced :)

Ali
and you can divide it 5 times

Damon
12= 2*6 = 2*2*3
so
1, 2 , 3 , 12
12 and 1
2 and 6
3 and 4 
Damon
