Step 1
The lowest ' number is 2. So we begin by dividing 42 by 2.
42 ÷ 2 = 21
Now 21 cannot be divided by 2 so we now divide by the next highest ' number which is 3.
21 ÷ 3 = 7
Step 2
Now 7 is a ' number
7 ÷ 7 = 1 when we reach 1 we stop there.
Prime factors of 42 are 2, 3 and 7 and as a product of ' factors, means expressing them in multiplication form.
42 = 2 × 3 × 7 product of ' factors
