## Is it possible for a number to have no prime factors?

It is possible for a number to have no prime factors: , and none-rational numbers (note ). No. The prime factorization of a number is unique. And no, every number is either prime, or is a product of prime factors (except for 1, which is neither prime nor composite, but is simply called a unit).

## What numbers are prime factors?

Prime numbers are numbers that have only 2 factors: 1 and themselves. For example, the first 5 prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11. By contrast, numbers with more than 2 factors are call composite numbers.

**What are all the prime factors of 20?**

**How do you solve prime factors?**

Follow the below steps to find the prime factors of a number using the division method:

- Step 1: Divide the given number by the smallest prime number.
- Step 2: Again, divide the quotient by the smallest prime number.
- Step 3: Repeat the process, until the quotient becomes 1.
- Step 4: Finally, multiply all the prime factors.

## What are the prime factors of 2?

Prime factorization of 2 is 2. 2 is the only even prime number. It has only two factors 1 and 2.

## What is the prime factor of 72?

For example, we can write the number 72 as a product of prime factors: 72 = 2 3 ⋅ 3 2 . The expression 2 3 ⋅ 3 2 is said to be the prime factorization of 72.

**What is the prime factor of 54?**

Answer: The prime factorization of 54 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 2 × 3.

### How many different prime factors does 20 have?

As 20! =20×19×18×⋯×3×2×1, we can can do this by finding the prime factorisation of each of the numbers 2, 3, …, 20 (ignoring 1 since it won’t contribute any primes) and multiplying them together….Solution.

Number | Prime factorisation |
---|---|

19 | 19 |

20 | 22×5 |
