For starters, I'll state that most people aren't simply waiting around to help you at the exact moment you post here - for those reading this please see the "HELP" and "HELP NOW" posts. I also use this manner of writing as demanding help is what this comes across as.Continuing to the help you asked for. For this example, I will use the number 54, as I do not wish to simply give you the answer:When calculating the prime factors of a number, you must first find a number that it can be divided by. 54 can be divided by 2, so we say:54 = 27 X 22 is a prime number, so we can leave it as it is. We must now find a number that 27 can be divided by, one of which is 3.54 = (7 X 3) X 2 = 7 X 3 X 23 is a prime number, so we can leave it as it is, and 7 is a prime number so we can leave it as it is. Therefore the final answer if the number in question were 54 would be:54 = 7 X 3 X 2Remember that this isn't a place that should be used to get answers. This is a place used to learn methods to achieve the correct answers on your own.

Every number can be written in the form of prime numbers 2 , 3, 5 ... so 36 can be written as 2x2x3x3 = 36So these are the prime factors of 36

any number that will be divisionable into 36like 1 will divide into 362 will divide 36 and will give you 183 divide 36 is 124 divide 36 is 95 wont work6 divide 36 is 67 wont work.. so it goes on...

prime numbers are numbers that cannot be divided into any other factor apart from 1 and the number itself. for example, 2, 3, 5, 7 etc..the products are the results of multiplied factors.for example, 2 x 3 = 6; in this case, 6 is the product. 36 has the following factors: 1, 36, 4, 9, 2, 18, 3, 12of which all can be expanded into 2s and 3s (both prime numbers) , as a result, the expanded answer is: 2 x 2 x 3 x 3
