PRIME FACTORIZATION -
Prime factorization is the process of expressing a positive integer as a product of its prime factors. A prime factor is a prime number that divides the original integer exactly without leaving a remainder.
Here's how you can find the prime factorization of a number:
For example, let's find the prime factorization of the number 56:
The prime factorization of 56 is 2³ X 7.
Another Example:- Let's find the prime factorization of 120:
The prime factorization of 120 is 2³ X 3 X 5.
Prime factorization is important in various mathematical and computational applications, including finding the greatest common divisor (GCD) and least common multiple (LCM) of numbers, simplifying fractions, and solving certain types of equations.
