Practice Objectives
• Demonstrate the ability to determine if a number is prime, composite, or neither
• Demonstrate the ability to find the prime factorization of a whole number

## Practice Finding the Prime Factorization of a Whole Number

Instructions:

Answer 7/10 questions correctly to pass.

Problem:

Correct! Not Correct! Prime Number Definition:

• A whole number larger than 1
• Only divisible by itself and 1

Composite Number Definition:

• A whole number larger than 1
• Divisible by some number other than itself or 1

Neither Prime nor Composite:

• 0 is not prime or composite
• 1 is not prime or composite

Finding the Prime Factorization of a Whole Number:

Composite Numbers:

1. Find any two factors (excluding the number and 1)
2. Check each of the two factors to determine if they are prime
3. Build a list that contains each prime factor
4. For any composite factor, repeat the steps until all factors are prime
