Work upward. Perform repeated division until the final quotient is a prime number. It is helpful to start with the smallest prime, 2, as a trial divisor. Then, in order, try larger primes as divisors: 3, 5, 7, 11, and so on. Either way, the factorization is 2 ؒ 3 ؒ 5 ؒ 7. To check it, multiply the prime factors. The product should be 210. Self Check 1 Now Try Find the prime factorization of 189. Problems 15 and 23 ẅ Recognize Special Fraction Forms. ” numerator ᮡ The Language of Algebra A fraction describes the number of equal parts of a whole.

Why Solution The Language of Algebra Prime factors often are written in ascending order. To ascend means to move upward. To prime factor a number means to write it as a product of prime numbers. First, write 210 as the product of two natural numbers other than 1. 210 ϭ 10 ؒ 21 The resulting prime factorization will be the same no matter which two factors of 210 you begin with. Neither 10 nor 21 are prime numbers, so we factor each of them. 210 ϭ 2 ؒ 5 ؒ 3 ؒ 7 Factor 10 as 2 ؒ 5 and factor 21 as 3 ؒ 7.
