In this section of I/GCSE Mathematics, we will discuss the fundamental theorem of arithmetic - product of primes.

Let's check it below~

Product of primes

- Every positive integer (excluding 1) can be expressed as a product of primes and this factorization is unique.
- How to do so in I/GCSE Mathematics? You can check it below.

Approach 1

To write a number as a product of primes first write it as a product of any two convenient factors.

Approach 2

An alternative but usually less efficient approach is simply to test for divisibility by primes in ascending order.

That's all for the product of primes in I/GCSE Mathematics.

Well done!
