#### Storyboard Text

• ﻿This is not needed in society why learn it?
• Hey, you better not be going to earthling school yet, at least before not before you learn Prime Factorization I’ve taught lot things before this but, you need to know how to do this.
• ﻿Ok, then how do Prime Factorization?﻿
• ﻿Because you will need this in school and it will help with your multiplying
• If that’s a prime number then what’s a factor tree?
• There are lots of ways but to do Prime Factorization, I think you’ll find this one simpler, It’s called a factor tree but, first you need to know what a prime number is a whole number greater than 1, whose only two whole-number factors are 1 and itself
• OK, how do you use a factor tree?
• A factor tree can be used to find the GCF (Greatest Common Factor) of number using prime numbers
• Wow, that’s a lot of stuff to know, well I guess it’s easy when you don’t think about it but, is there anything else I to know?
• First,  you put a number down let’s say 24 now you could go with either 12x2 or 6x4 you’re going to get the same answer now that you have your factor (12x2) put them in a tree like position with lines going to 24. So we know that 2 is prime because it has no other factors but, and itself but, 12 is not a prime number it can be multiplied by 6x2 or 3x4 now that we have our factors (4x3) we know that 3 prime number and four is not then we do the same thing we did at the and then find the prime numbers you have so (2x2x2x3)
• So basically I find the prime numbers and put it in exponential form but, if doesn’t say that just do put all the prime numbers there with x sign. I get it thanks, Ryoto I’m going to school now bye.
• Yes, there probably going to ask you to put it  in exponential for which they basically want you to exponent in case you forgot an exponent multiples the number how many time the number is like 4 exponent 5 it’d be 4x4x4x4x4
