Show that every positive number n can be represented as a product of prime numbers.

Hi,

Ive been trying to work out this problem from a past exam paper, but I really just dont understand.....

Show that every positive number n can be represented as a product of prime numbers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated....

To show that every natural number n>1 is prime or the product of primes, use strong induction on n.
