### Example: Find factors of 179

• Divide 179 by 1: 179 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 179 by 179: 179 ÷ 179 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 179 are 1 and 179

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 179 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 179 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 179 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 179, which is 179. Divide 179 by 179 to obtain the quotient (1).
179 ÷ 179 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 179 is, 179 = 179.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 179 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 179 is, 179 = 179.

#### 3. Find factors of 179 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 179 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 179 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 179 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 179 1 x 179 = 179

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 179. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 179 would be ( -1 , -179 ) , .

#### How can we define factors?

In mathematics, a factor is a number which divides into another number exactly, without leaving any remainder. A factor of a number can be positive of negative.

#### Properties of factors

• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 179 x 0 = 0.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 179 are exact divisors of 179.
