# What Is The Prime Factorization Of 60

What is the prime factorization of 60? Answer: 2 * 2 * 3 * 5

The prime factorization of 60 has 4 prime factors. If you multiply all primes in the factorization together then 60=2 * 2 * 3 * 5. Prime factors can only have two factors(1 and itself) and only be divisible by those two factors. Any number where this rule applies can be called a prime factor. The biggest prime factor of 60 is 5. The smallest prime factor of 60 is 2.

## How To Write 60 As A Product Of Prime Factors

How to write 60 as a product of prime factors or in exponential notation? First we need to know the prime factorization of 60 which is 2 * 2 * 3 * 5. Next we add all numbers that are repeating more than once as exponents of these numbers.

Using exponential notation we can write 60=22*31*51

For clarity all readers should know that 60=2 * 2 * 3 * 5=22*31*51 this index form is the right way to express a number as a product of prime factors.

## Prime Factorization Of 60 With Upside Down Division Method

Prime factorization of 60 using upside down division method. Upside down division gives visual clarity when writing it on paper. It works by dividing the starting number 60 with its smallest prime factor(a figure that is only divisible with itself and 1). Then we continue the division with the answer of the last division. We find the smallest prime factor for each answer and make a division. We are essentially using successive divisions. This continues until we get an answer that is itself a prime factor. Then we make a list of all the prime factors that were used in the divisions and we call it prime factorization of 60.

2|60 We divide 60 with its smallest prime factor, which is 2
2|30 We divide 30 with its smallest prime factor, which is 2
3|15 We divide 15 with its smallest prime factor, which is 3
5 The division of 3/15=5. 5 is a prime factor. Prime factorization is complete

The solved solution using upside down division is the prime factorization of 60=2 * 2 * 3 * 5. Remember that all divisions in this calculation have to be divisible, meaning they will leave no remainder.

## Single Digit Properties For 60 Explained

• Integer 6 properties: 6 is even and a composite, with the following divisors:1, 2, 3, 6. Also called perfect number since the sum of the divisors(excluding itself) is 6. The first perfect figure, the next ones are 28 and 496. Six is highly a composed, semiprimo, congruent, scarcely total, Ulam, Wedderburn-Etherington, multi-perfect, integer-free number. Complete Harshad, which is a quantity of Harshad in any expressed base. The factorial of 3 and a semi-perfect digit. The third triangular and the first hexagonal value. All perfect even amounts are triangular and hexagonal. Six is the smallest amount different from 1 whose square (36) is triangular(the next in the line that enjoys this property is 35). Strictly a non-palindrome. A numeral is divisible by 6 if and only if it is divisible by both 2 and 3. Part of the Pythagorean triple (6, 8, 10). Being the product of the first two primes (6=2×3), it is a primitive. In the positional numbering system based on 5 it is a repeated number. An oblong, of the form n(n+1).
• Integer 0 properties: 0 is the only real figure that is neither positive nor negative. Sometimes it is included in natural numbers where it can be considered the only natural in addition to the one to be neither first nor composed, as well as the minimum of natural numbers(that is, no natural digit precedes the 0). In an oriented line (which makes a point on the straight line correspond to each real number, preserving also the relation of order), the 0 coincides conventionally with the origin. Since it can be written in the form 2k, with con k integer, 0 is called even. It is both a figure and a numeral. In set theory, the zero is the cardinality of the empty set. In fact, in certain axiomatic mathematical developments derived from set theories, zero is defined as the empty set. In geometry, the size of a point is 0. Zero is the identity element of an additive group or additive identity in a ring.

## Finding Prime Factorization Of A Number

The prime factorization of 60 contains 4 primes. The prime factorization of 60 is and equals 2 * 2 * 3 * 5. This answer was calculated using the upside down division method. We could have also used other methods such as a factor tree to arrive to the same answer. The method used is not important. What is important is to correctly solve the solution.

## List of divisibility rules for finding prime factors faster

Knowing these divisibility rules will help you find primes more easily. Finding prime factors faster helps you solve prime factorization faster.

Rule 1: If the last digit of a number is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 then it is an even integer. All even integers are divisible by 2.

Rule 2: If the sum of digits of a number is divisible by 3 then the figure is also divisible by 3 and 3 is a prime factor(example: the digits of 102 are 1, 0 and 2 so 1+0+2=3 and 3 is divisible by 3, meaning that 102 is divisible by 3). The same logic works also for number 9.

Rule 3: If the last two digits of a number are 00 then this number is divisible by 4(example: we know that 212=200+12 and 200 has two zeros in the end making it divisible with 4. We also know that 4 is divisible with 12). In order to use this rule to it's fullest it is best to know multiples of 4.

Rule 4: If the last digit of a integer is 0 or 5 then it is divisible by 5. We all know that 2*5=10 which is why the zero is logical.

Rule 5: All numbers that are divisible by both 2 and 3 are also divisible by 6. This makes much sense because 2*3=6.

## 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 figures 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 primes contained in a number.
