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.

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

  3. OK but why

  4. 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

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

  12. 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

  15. 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
