## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

The prime factorization of $96$ is $$2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 3$$ or $$2^5 \times 3$$
Using the factor tree, you will find that $2,2,2,2,2,$ and $3$ are the prime numbers that multiply to $96$. $$2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 3$$ or $$2^5 \times 3$$
