0Jack A Lopez 8 years ago Well, 3 and 41 are both prime. See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_numberhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integer_factorization So I think 123 = 3*41 is about as simple as it's going to get.

0canucksgirlsarai1 Answer 8 years ago You mean like this? (By the way... make sure you learn it and not just copy it). :-)

0canucksgirlcanucksgirl Answer 8 years ago So.... 3 goes into 12, 4 times.... 4 X 3 = 12..... bring down the 3.... 3 goes into 3 one time.... 3 - 3 = 0Answer is 41

0kelseymhcanucksgirl Answer 8 years ago Ahem. You're not supposed to do people's homework for them. Give a man a fish, and all that...

0canucksgirlkelseymh Answer 8 years ago LOL... Agreed. (That's why I suggested the OP learn it, instead of just copying it). :-)
