#### 2. Steps to find factors of 2560 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 2560 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 2560 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 2560, which is 2. Divide 2560 by 2 to obtain the quotient (1280).
2560 ÷ 2 = 1280
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1280).
1280 ÷ 2 = 640
640 ÷ 2 = 320
320 ÷ 2 = 160
160 ÷ 2 = 80
80 ÷ 2 = 40
40 ÷ 2 = 20
20 ÷ 2 = 10
10 ÷ 2 = 5
5 ÷ 5 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 2560 is, 2560 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 2560 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 2560 is, 2560 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5.

#### 3. Find factors of 2560 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 2560 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 2560 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 2560 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 2560 1 x 2560 = 2560
2 and 1280 2 x 1280 = 2560
4 and 640 4 x 640 = 2560
5 and 512 5 x 512 = 2560
8 and 320 8 x 320 = 2560
10 and 256 10 x 256 = 2560
16 and 160 16 x 160 = 2560
20 and 128 20 x 128 = 2560
32 and 80 32 x 80 = 2560
40 and 64 40 x 64 = 2560

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 2560. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 2560 would be ( -1 , -2560 ) , ( -2 , -1280 ) , ( -4 , -640 ) , ( -5 , -512 ) , ( -8 , -320 ) , ( -10 , -256 ) , ( -16 , -160 ) , ( -20 , -128 ) , ( -32 , -80 ) and ( -40 , -64 ) .

#### What are factors?

In mathematics, a factor is that number which divides into another number exactly, without leaving a remainder. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.
