SIMPLE NUMBERS. 1. Any exact integral divisor of a number (except the number itself and 1) is called a factor of the number. The factors of 6 are and . The factors of 10 are and ——-. 2. A factor that is itself a prime number is called a prime factor. A factor that is itself a composite number is called a composite factor. 2 and 3 are factors of 24. 4 and 6 are ■ factors of 24. 3. Every composite number may be resolved into prime factors. The prime factors of 12 are 2, 2, and 3. The prime factors of 15 are and . The prime factors of 14 are and . The prime factors of 30 are , —-, and . 4. From the above it will be seen that a number is equal to the product of its prime factors. 3 and 7 are the prime factors of ;2, 2, and 7, of ——. $11.22 NUMBER STORY. 1 hundredth of an acre of land is worth -—-. 3 hundredths of an acre of land are worth .
