Prime number is a number which has no other factors other than one and itself.

Examples of prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29……..

Prime factorization is one of the basic and important ways to find the factors of a given number. Factors are

the numbers which multiplied together give another number. The product of all the prime factors for the number gives back the original number.

The number can be written as 6 = 2 * 3.

Here 2 and 3 are the prime numbers whose product givens back the original number 6.

First Step: To find its prime factors.

we divide the given number with the smallest prime number.

92 ÷ 2 = 46; so, 96 = 46 * 2

Now the number 46 can be further divided by the prime number 2.

So here we have 46 ÷ 2 = 23.

The number 23 cannot be further divided by any other number.

Because 23 itself is a prime number divisible by one and itself.

So here we have 46 = 2 * 23.

Using the prime factorization 92 = 2 * 2 * 23.

Here 2, 2, 23 are the prime numbers whose product gives back the number 92.
