The

**number**one has only one factor and is considered to be neither**prime**nor composite. When a composite**number**is written as a product of all of its**prime**factors, we have the**prime**factorization of the**number**. For example, the**number 36**can be written as a product of primes as:**36**= 2² x 3².Also to know is, how many factors are in the number 36?

**Factors of 36**: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18,

**36**. Prime factorization:

**36**= 2 x 2 x 3 x 3, which can also be written

**36**= 2² x 3².

What numbers are multiples of 6 and factors of 36?

factors of 36 are

**2**,**3**,**4**, 6,**9**,**12**,**18**; of these, the multiples of**3**are**3**, 6,**9**,**12**,**18**.Is the number 36 a perfect square?

A number

**is**a**perfect square**(or a**square**number) if its**square**root**is**an integer; that**is**to say, it**is**the product of an integer with itself. Here, the**square**root of**36 is**6. Therefore, the**square**root of**36 is**an integer, and as a consequence**36 is**a**perfect square**.
