# I finally got It I had Prime Factorization and whole number factors mixed up ahahahaha read more :) people who answered

I have this mixed up

This Is called "Prime Factorization"

60

60/2= 30
30/2=15
15/3=5
5/5=1

So 2x2x3x5 = 60

And the other Is called "Whole Number Factors"

18

18/1= 18
18/2= 9
18/3= 6
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

So basically I had Whole number factors and prime factorization mixed am -_- that's why I could not solve 126 factorization -_-

now I got It

126

126/2= 63
63/3= 21
21/3 = 7

So 126 = 2x3x3x7
