#### 2. Steps to find factors of 2541 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 2541 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 2541 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 2541, which is 3. Divide 2541 by 3 to obtain the quotient (847).
2541 ÷ 3 = 847
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (847).
847 ÷ 7 = 121
121 ÷ 11 = 11
11 ÷ 11 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 2541 is, 2541 = 3 x 7 x 11 x 11.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 2541 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 2541 is, 2541 = 3 x 7 x 11 x 11.

#### 3. Find factors of 2541 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 2541 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 2541 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 2541 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 2541 1 x 2541 = 2541
3 and 847 3 x 847 = 2541
7 and 363 7 x 363 = 2541
11 and 231 11 x 231 = 2541
21 and 121 21 x 121 = 2541
33 and 77 33 x 77 = 2541

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 2541. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 2541 would be ( -1 , -2541 ) , ( -3 , -847 ) , ( -7 , -363 ) , ( -11 , -231 ) , ( -21 , -121 ) and ( -33 , -77 ) .

#### 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, 3, 7, 11, 21, 33, 77, 121, 231, 363, 847, 2541 are exact divisors of 2541.
