For FREE access to this lesson, select your course from the categories below.

Students learn that the prime factorization of a number is the given number written as the product of its prime factors. For example, to find the prime factorization of 45, use a factor tree to find that 45 is 5 x 9, and 9 is 3 x 3. So the prime factorization of 45 is 5 x 3 x 3, or 5 x 3^2. Note that the prime factorization of a prime number, such as 23, is the number itself.
