MATHS

In Maths we are learning about division and multiplication and to help us we are using factor trees.

To start a factor tree you choose a number and  find out which two numbers divide into it, then you do the same for those two numbers. Keep going until you can’t divide them any more then you multiply all the numbers at the bottom and you will end up with the number that you started with.

 

See my example below :

 

24

/  \

4      6

/ \       / \

2  2    3  2

 

2x2x3x2 = 24
