Write the exponent of 2 in the price factorization of 144.

Question:

Write the exponent of 2 in the price factorization of 144.

Solution:

Using the factor tree for prime factorization, we have:

Therefore,

$144=2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 3 \times 3$

$144=2^{4} \times 3^{2}$

Hence the exponent of 2 in 144 is 4
