To find all the prime factors of 1500, divide it by the lowest prime number possible.|
Then divide that result by the lowest prime number possible. Keep doing this
until the result itself is a prime number.
The prime factorization of 1500 will be
all the prime numbers you used to divide, in addition to the last result, which is a prime number.
The math and the solutions to prime factorization of 1500 is as follows:
1500 / 2 = 750
750 / 2 = 375
375 / 3 = 125
125 / 5 = 25
25 / 5 = 5
2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 5
NOTE: The solution above must be correct, because they are all prime numbers and if you multiply them together you will find that
they equal 1500.
