Do you know what is a **factor tree** in mathematics? Actually this concept we will learn in lower classes. Factor tree is the one of the method used for finding all the factors of a number.

If we see “**factor tree**” as two different words, the meaning of first word “factor” we know already i.e. a number which divides the given number exactly. Meaning of Second word “tree” also we know. I hope everyone knows what is a tree. But actually what does it means when we see them in combination? What is its definition?

**Definition of Factor Tree: **

The diagrammatic representation of all the factors (prime) of a given number in the form of a tree is called **factor tree**.

Example:

Factor tree of 32 can be written as shown below.

Factor tree for 18 can be written as shown below.

I think there is no that much difficulty in understanding this concept. So I hope that you have learnt how to write a factor tree for any number. If you have understood then just try writing **factor tree** by taking some numbers.
