How do you use prime factorization?
May 12, 2016
Please see below.
In mathematics we use them
- for simplifying fractions,
- for finding out HCF and LCM, the latter is again used to add fractions
- when you need to take a square root or cube root etc.
In fact they are used in umpteen way in daily practical life as well as complex applications such as
- Primality test
- Riemann hypothesis
- and last but not the least in RSA algorithm (for details see below).
