List all factors of π squared π.

These factors will be expressions that divide evenly into π squared π. And then when multiplied together, they would give us back π squared π. Now Iβm not multiplying all the factors altogether at once together. However, there could be a combination of some that would give us back π squared π.

So letβs begin with things that would go into π squared π evenly: one, π, π squared, and then two would be the highest exponent that we could go for π. So now letβs begin with π. π and then thatβs it for π. There is no π squared. There arenβt enough πs for π squared to go into that evenly.

So now we could put one π and one π together into π squared π. And then to make that a little larger, we can have π squared and π go into there evenly. And this will be it. This will be all of the expressions that would go evenly into π squared π. So these would be all of our factors.
