### Example: Find factors of 233

• Divide 233 by 1: 233 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 233 by 233: 233 ÷ 233 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 233 are 1 and 233

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 233 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 233 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 233 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 233, which is 233. Divide 233 by 233 to obtain the quotient (1).
233 ÷ 233 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 233 is, 233 = 233.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 233 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 233 is, 233 = 233.

#### 3. Find factors of 233 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 233 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 233 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 233 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 233 1 x 233 = 233

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 233. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 233 would be ( -1 , -233 ) , .

#### 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.
