What Is A Prime Number?
Definitionof prime numbers: a prime number is a positive whole number(greater than 1) that is only divisible by one and itself.
This means that all prime numbers are only divisible by two numbers. The amount of prime numbers is infinite. The bigger the prime number is the harder it is to know if it is a prime or not. Bigger prime numbers will have more integers between other primes. The biggest use cases for prime numbers were found once electronics were invented. Modern cryptography uses large primes.
What Are Factors Of A Number?
Whole numbers that are divisible without leaving any fractional part or remainder are called factors of a number. A factor of a number is also called it's divisor.
What Are Prime Factors Of A Number?
All numbers that are only divisible by one and itself are called prime factors in mathematics. A prime factor is a number that has only two factors(one and itself).
What Is Prime Factorization Of A Number?
In mathematics breaking down a composite number(a positive integer that can be the sum of two smaller numbers multiplied together) into a multiplication of smaller numbers is called factorization. When the same process is continued until all numbers have been broken down into their prime factor multiplications then this process is called prime factorization.
Using prime factorization we can find all prime factors containing in a number.
