222+ 1 = 223 and isnt 223 a prime number itself? so it cannot have 3 prime factors
anonymous

oh wait it says when simplified. um maybe its a different answer in that case. sorry. can anybody confirm my reply?

No, you're right. 223 is a prime, so it has only two distinct factors (by definition): 1 and itself.

thanks for confirming! so it technically cannot be simplfied any further because its prime itself.

"Simplified" is probably a wrong word to use. It has no non-trivial divisors / factors. 1 qualifies as trivial. :)
