Hence, Factors of 2048 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, and 2048

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 2048 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 2048 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 2048 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 2048, which is 2. Divide 2048 by 2 to obtain the quotient (1024).
2048 ÷ 2 = 1024
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1024).
1024 ÷ 2 = 512
512 ÷ 2 = 256
256 ÷ 2 = 128
128 ÷ 2 = 64
64 ÷ 2 = 32
32 ÷ 2 = 16
16 ÷ 2 = 8
8 ÷ 2 = 4
4 ÷ 2 = 2
2 ÷ 2 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 2048 is, 2048 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 2048 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 2048 is, 2048 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2.

#### 3. Find factors of 2048 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 2048 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 2048 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 2048 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 2048 1 x 2048 = 2048
2 and 1024 2 x 1024 = 2048
4 and 512 4 x 512 = 2048
8 and 256 8 x 256 = 2048
16 and 128 16 x 128 = 2048
32 and 64 32 x 64 = 2048

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 2048. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 2048 would be ( -1 , -2048 ) , ( -2 , -1024 ) , ( -4 , -512 ) , ( -8 , -256 ) , ( -16 , -128 ) and ( -32 , -64 ) .

#### 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

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 2048 is a factor of itself.
