# 9. In which of the following expressions, prime factorisation has been done? (a) 24 = 2 3 4                    (b) 56 = 7 2 2 2 (c) 70 = 2 5  7                    (d) 54 = 2 3 9

in factorization, we don't write composite numbers. All the factors should be prime numbers in this method.

(a) 24 = 2 3

As we know that 4 is a composite number.
Hence This is not a prime factorization.

b) 56 = 7 2 2 2
In this factorization, all the factors of 56 are prime numbers. There is no composite number.
Hence This is prime factorization.

c) 70 = 2
In this factorization, all the factors of 70 are prime numbers. There is not a composite number in this process of factorization.
Hence This is prime factorization.

d) 54 = 2 3 9
In this factorization, 54 is written as the product of 2, 3 and 9. In this factorization, 2 and 3 are prime numbers, but 9 is a composite number.
Hence This is not a prime factorization.
