Express as a product of Prime factor 24?

Prime factors means prime numbers Let’s list the first 5 prime numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, 11 9 is not a prime number because it belongs to the 3 times tables as well as itself and 1. Now 24 —> 2 x 12 2 is lowest prime so leave that, focus on 12 24 —> 2 x 12 —> 2 x 2 x 6 Leave the 2’s focus on the 6 24 —> 2 x 12 —> 2 x 2 x 6 —> 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 Now they are all prime Final Answer: 24 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 = (2^3) x 3

We need to reduce 24 to a list of prime numbers multiplied together 24=12*2 12=6*2 6=3*2 So 24=2*2*2*3 =2³ * 3
