    Hopefully we can stick to this thread instead of jumping around making loads of different ones, not really getting anywhere.

    Anyone got any answers they would like to share?

    Q1) Express 36 as a product of its prime factors

    I'm sure the answer was 36 = 2^2 x 3^3

    Correct me if i'm wrong

    36
    12 x (3)
    6 x (2)
    (3) x (2)

    Yeah I figured that one out too I think. Does it matte which order you put the numbers in, if it's the same result?

    Nah I did foundation. I'm thinking that I should have squared the numbers instead of just leaving them as they are. It means the same thing, but I don't know if it would be sacrifice some marks :/
