### Example: Find factors of 223

• Divide 223 by 1: 223 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 223 by 223: 223 ÷ 223 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 223 are 1 and 223

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 223 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 223 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 223 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 223, which is 223. Divide 223 by 223 to obtain the quotient (1).
223 ÷ 223 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 223 is, 223 = 223.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 223 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 223 is, 223 = 223.

#### 3. Find factors of 223 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 223 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 223 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 223 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 223 1 x 223 = 223

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 223. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 223 would be ( -1 , -223 ) , .

#### 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 223 x 0 = 0.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
