FINDING FACTORS THROUGH FACTORIZATION METHOD

**FINDING FACTORS THROUGH PRIME FACTORIZATION METHOD -**

**PRIME FACTORIZATION METHOD :-**

**· In this method, we divide the number with its smallest prime factor.**

**· Keep on dividing till we get one as a quotient. We must use PRIME NUMBERS ONLY.**

**Example.1) Write the prime factorization of 210.**

**(You should multiply
all the factors to verify your answer)**

**So, the factors of 210 are 210 = 2 X 3 X 5 X 7 X 1 (Ans.)**

**Example.2) Write the prime factorization of 270.**

(**You should multiply all the factors to verify your answer)**

**So, the factors of 270 are 270 = 2 X 3 X 5 X 3 X 3 X 1 (Ans.) **
