### Example: Find factors of 241

• Divide 241 by 1: 241 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 241 by 241: 241 ÷ 241 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 241 are 1 and 241

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 241 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 241 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 241 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 241, which is 241. Divide 241 by 241 to obtain the quotient (1).
241 ÷ 241 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 241 is, 241 = 241.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 241 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 241 is, 241 = 241.

#### 3. Find factors of 241 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 241 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 241 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 241 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 241 1 x 241 = 241

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 241. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 241 would be ( -1 , -241 ) , .

#### 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

• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 241 are exact divisors of 241.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
