### Example: Find factors of 203

• Divide 203 by 1: 203 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 203 by 7: 203 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 203 by 29: 203 ÷ 29 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 203 by 203: 203 ÷ 203 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 203 are 1, 7, 29, and 203

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 203 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 203 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 203 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 203, which is 7. Divide 203 by 7 to obtain the quotient (29).
203 ÷ 7 = 29
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (29).
29 ÷ 29 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 203 is, 203 = 7 x 29.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 203 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 203 is, 203 = 7 x 29.

#### 3. Find factors of 203 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 203 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 203 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 203 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 203 1 x 203 = 203
7 and 29 7 x 29 = 203

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 203. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 203 would be ( -1 , -203 ) , ( -7 , -29 ) .

#### What is the definition of factors?

In mathematics, factors are number, algebraic expressions which when multiplied together produce desired product. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of factors

• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 203 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, 7, 29, 203 are exact divisors of 203.
• Factors of 203 are 1, 7, 29, 203. Each factor divides 203 without leaving a remainder.
