### Example: Find factors of 226

• Divide 226 by 1: 226 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 226 by 2: 226 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 226 by 113: 226 ÷ 113 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 226 by 226: 226 ÷ 226 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 226 are 1, 2, 113, and 226

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 226 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 226 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 226 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 226, which is 2. Divide 226 by 2 to obtain the quotient (113).
226 ÷ 2 = 113
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (113).
113 ÷ 113 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 226 is, 226 = 2 x 113.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 226 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 226 is, 226 = 2 x 113.

#### 3. Find factors of 226 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 226 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 226 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 226 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 226 1 x 226 = 226
2 and 113 2 x 113 = 226

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 226. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 226 would be ( -1 , -226 ) , ( -2 , -113 ) .

#### How can we define factors?

In mathematics a factor is a number which divides into another without leaving any remainder. Or we can say, any two numbers that multiply to give a product are both factors of that product. It can be both positive or negative.

#### Properties of factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 226 is a factor of itself.
• 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, 2, 113, 226 are exact divisors of 226.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 226.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 226 x 0 = 0.
