OK, let's be honest: This blog is brand new, so there are no frequently asked questions. There are no infrequently asked questions either. But hypothetically, what might be asked?

### Your title doesn't make any sense.

Not really a question, but OK.

If we write a number as a product of prime numbers, then we have factorised the number into its prime components. For example:

126 = 7 × 3 × 3 × 2

See?

### Yeah, I knew that. But you spell 'factorization' wrong.

Again, not a question.

This might come up a bit on this blog. I put 's' where some people put 'z'. I spell like an Australian because, well, I'm an Australian. I'll also use 'maths' instead of 'math'. I hope you can cope with that.

### Even so, you can't factorise a person.

Really not getting the question thing, are you?

To be honest, I have no idea what the title of this blog is supposed to mean. I have a vague idea of what it could mean, but not really clear enough to put down here. I chose the domain primefactorisation.com before I figured out anything else, so I guess that's what happens when you don't plan ahead.

### Did you deliberately phrase all the previous questions as statements, just so you could get snarky at an imaginary person?

Yeah, I did. Sorry about that.
