00:00:00.860 --> 00:00:02.280
Complete the factor tree.
00:00:03.220 --> 00:00:06.280
So at the top, we have the number 462.
00:00:07.040 --> 00:00:18.020
And if we look down at the bottom, we have that 462 is equal to 11 times some number that we don’t know times seven times two.
00:00:18.660 --> 00:00:21.910
And a factor tree helps us figure that out.
00:00:22.660 --> 00:00:29.370
So to begin, 462 is equal to 33 times some number.
00:00:29.900 --> 00:00:36.350
So to figure that out, we simply need to take 462 and divide by 33.
00:00:36.390 --> 00:00:39.740
This will give us that number, and it’s equal to 14.
00:00:40.400 --> 00:00:47.640
And we can double-check this because, below that, 14 is equal to seven times two, which is true.
00:00:48.550 --> 00:00:54.870
So over by the 33, 33 is equal to some number times three.
00:00:55.850 --> 00:01:01.380
So to find that number, we need to take 33 and divide by three, which gives us 11.
00:01:02.000 --> 00:01:04.400
So 11 times three is equal to 33.
00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:08.800
So now the factor tree is complete, but how do we know?
00:01:09.210 --> 00:01:26.490
The reason why we know is because 11, three, seven, and two are all prime, meaning it’s only divisible by itself and one, so there wouldn’t be any more tree branches to break it up, because it will just be one times itself.
00:01:27.170 --> 00:01:29.170
So notice these numbers at the bottom.
00:01:29.590 --> 00:01:34.920
Now that we are complete, we’ll actually multiply to equal 462.
00:01:35.460 --> 00:01:44.040
So to complete the bottom, 462 is equal to 11 times three times seven times two.
00:01:44.680 --> 00:01:46.230
So now our factor tree is complete.
00:01:46.630 --> 00:01:49.360
So our first blank we filled in 14.
00:01:49.760 --> 00:01:51.410
This blank we filled in 11.
00:01:51.720 --> 00:01:53.270
And this blank we filled in a three.
00:01:53.620 --> 00:01:55.300
So these will be our final answers.
