Could you explain this?
("Dumb it down for me")
So far I know that 2^2 x 3 x 5^4 x 8 x 11^2
is equal to 4 x 3 x 625 x 8 x 121. (I think)
==========================================
A number is written with the following factorization: 2^2 × 3 × 5^4 × 8 × 11^2. 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 don't need the answer I just need the question explained.

prime factorization:made up of primes, each to some power. In this case, 2,3,5,11 are primes, but 8 is not, it is 2^3, so prime factorization should be
2^5 * 3 *5^4 *11^2

Ah. Thank you.
