Find the prime factorisation of 32

We have to find the prime factorisation of 32

Solution

Prime factorisation of 32

The first step is to divide the number 32 with the smallest prime factor, say 2.

32 ÷ 2 = 16

Step 2: Again divide 16 by 2 and the process goes on.

16 ÷ 2 = 8

8 ÷ 2 = 4

4 ÷ 2 = 2

2 ÷ 2 = 1

So, the prime factors of 32 are written as 2 × 2 x 2 x 2 x 2
