Find the prime factorisation of each number by factor tree method and division method.
(a) 60
(b) 128
(c) 144
(d) 198
(e) 420
(f) 999
Solution:
(a) 60 ∴ 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5
Also ∴ 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5
(b) 128 ∴ 128 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2
Also ∴ 128 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2
(c) 144 ∴ 144 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3
Also ∴ 144 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3
(d) 198 ∴ 198 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 11
Also ∴ 198 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 11
(e) 420 ∴ 420 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 7
Also ∴ 420 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 7
(f) 999 ∴ 999 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 37
Also ∴ 999 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 37 Question 12.
If there are 143 math books to be arranged in equal numbers in all the stacks, then find the number of books in each stack and also the number of stacks.
