Prime Factorizations

Composite number can always be written as a product
of primes. Such a product is called the Prime factorization
of a number. For example, the prime factorization of 12 is
2 x 2 x 3. Since every whole number greater than 1 is either
prime or a product of primes, prime numbers are often
referred to as the building blocks of the whole numbers.
