Am I correct about Whole Number Factoring? and Prime Factorization?
Okay so prime factorization Is used to break down huge numbers like. 420
And Whole number factoring Is used to break down numbers for fractions, using 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8
18/4= Can't divide evenly
18/5= Can't divide evenly
18/6= The factors are repeating.
The factors of 18 are 1,2,3,6,9,18
It can be very easy to spot the common denominator etc.
Am I correct or Is there more to It?
