### Example: Find factors of 1517

• Divide 1517 by 1: 1517 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 1517 by 37: 1517 ÷ 37 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 1517 by 41: 1517 ÷ 41 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 1517 by 1517: 1517 ÷ 1517 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 1517 are 1, 37, 41, and 1517

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 1517 using Prime Factorization

A prime number is a number that has exactly two factors, 1 and the number itself. Prime factorization of a number means breaking down of the number into the form of products of its prime factors.

There are two different methods that can be used for the prime factorization.

#### Method 1: Division Method

To find the primefactors of 1517 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 1517 by the smallest prime number, i.e., 2, 3, 5, and so on. Find the smallest prime factor of the number.
• Step 2. After finding the smallest prime factor of the number 1517, which is 37. Divide 1517 by 37 to obtain the quotient (41).
1517 ÷ 37 = 41
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (41).
41 ÷ 41 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 1517 is, 1517 = 37 x 41.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 1517 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 1517 is, 1517 = 37 x 41.

#### 3. Find factors of 1517 in Pairs

Pair factors of a number are any two numbers which, which on multiplying together, give that number as a result. The pair factors of 1517 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 1517 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 1517 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 1517 1 x 1517 = 1517
37 and 41 37 x 41 = 1517

Since the product of two negative numbers gives a positive number, the product of the negative values of both the numbers in a pair factor will also give 1517. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 1517 would be ( -1 , -1517 ) , ( -37 , -41 ) .

#### How do you explain factors?

In mathematics, a factor is a number or also it can be an algebraic expression that divides another number or any expression completely and that too without leaving any remainder. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of factors
