    Hey guys, need to confirm my answers for these following question.

    Factoring the following numbers into the product of primes:

    a) 27

    My Answer:

    = 27 \cdot 1

    b) 1024

    My Answer:

    = 2^{10}

    c) 625000

    My Answer:

    = 2^3 \cdot 5^7

    d) 12! (Also equals 479001600)

    My Answer:

    = 2^{10} \cdot 3^5 \cdot 5^2 \cdot 7 \cdot 11
