Composite number 32,762,190 prime factorization (decomposing, breaking down into prime factors), written as a product of primes

The prime factorization (the decomposition into prime factors) of the composite number 32,762,190

The prime factorization of a number (the decomposition into prime factors): finding the prime numbers that multiply together to make that number.
Example: 12 = 2 × 2 × 3 = 22 × 3.


A prime number: a natural number that is divisible (it is divided without a remainder) only by 1 and itself. A prime number has only two factors: 1 and the number itself.
Examples: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23.

A composite number: a natural number that has at least one factor other than 1 and itself. A composite number has at least three factors. A composite number is also a number that is not a prime number.
Examples: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16.

The numbers 0 and 1 are considered neither prime nor composite numbers.

The prime numbers are the building blocks of all the numbers except for 0 and 1.

The composite numbers are made of prime numbers that are multiplied together.

The only even prime number is 2. All the other prime numbers are odd numbers.



The prime factorization of a number, how is it done?

Let's learn by having an example:
- Take the number 220 and build its prime factorization

We need the list of the first prime numbers, ordered from 2 up to, let's say, 20:
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19.
The prime numbers are the building blocks of the composite numbers.


1. Start by dividing 220 by the smallest prime number, 2:
220 ÷ 2 = 110; remainder = 0 =>
220 is divisible by 2 => 2 is a prime factor of 220:
220 = 2 × 110.


The article continues below...

2. Divide the result of the previous operation, 110, by 2, again:
110 ÷ 2 = 55; remainder = 0 =>
110 is divisible by 2 => 2 is a prime factor of 110:
220 = 2 × 110 = 2 × 2 × 55.


3. Divide the result of the previous operation, 55, by 2, again:
55 ÷ 2 = 27 + 1; remainder = 1 =>
55 is not divisible by 2.


4. Move on to the next prime number, 3. Divide 55 by 3:
55 ÷ 3 = 18 + 1; remainder = 1 =>
55 is not divisible by 3.


5. Move on to the next prime number, 5. Divide 55 by 5:
55 ÷ 5 = 11; remainder = 0 =>
55 is divisible by 5 => 5 is a prime factor of 55:
220 = 2 × 2 × 55 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 11.


6. Notice that the remaining factor, 11, is a prime number, so we've already found all the prime factors of 220.


Conclusion, the prime factorization of 220:
220 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 11.
This can be written in a condensed form, in exponential notation:
220 = 22 × 5 × 11.
