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

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

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
