    Can you think of any number that divides into 75?

    Well saifoo, except for the small point that 1,15,25, and 75 are not prime.

    Wait. my bad. the question says, "prime" factors. Prime numbers are the numbers which can only divide my themselves and by 1. For example. 1,2, 3, 5, 7 , 11. They can only divide by 1 and by themselves. Unlike numbers like 4, 8, 10 etc. they have soo many factors. Like 10 has 1,2, 5, 10.

    Now moving on with your question, it says "prime" factorization of 75? First of all we should list all factors of 75. 1, 3, 5, 15, 25, 75. Now find the "PRIME" numbers out of those. So they are 1, 3 and 5.
