Calculate Prime Factors of
The Prime Factors of 4 =
Prime factorization is the mathematical method of multiplying factors of a number together to get the original number. Let’s understand this concept with an example.
What is the prime factorization of 39?
First, we need to check if the given number is a prime number or not. If the number is a prime number then it cannot have more than 2 prime factors. Here, 39 is the given number and it is a composite number so it will have more than 2 factors.
The quotient is 1. Since 1 cannot be divided further, the prime factors of 39 are 3 X 13. We can also write it down as 3 and 13, as both of them are prime numbers.
