Is there an easy way to "break" apart 6480 to quickly find the prime factorization? The way I do it seems so time consuming!

dmaze01I am not certain if there is a perfect quick way to break it down. I split the number: 648 * 10.

This way I can note down 5*2 for 10 and start the prime factorization for 648 by picking the

biggest prime factor that divides 648.

Hope this helps.
