#### 2. Steps to find factors of 2646 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 2646 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 2646 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 2646, which is 2. Divide 2646 by 2 to obtain the quotient (1323).
2646 ÷ 2 = 1323
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1323).
1323 ÷ 3 = 441
441 ÷ 3 = 147
147 ÷ 3 = 49
49 ÷ 7 = 7
7 ÷ 7 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 2646 is, 2646 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 7.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 2646 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 2646 is, 2646 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 7.

#### 3. Find factors of 2646 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 2646 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 2646 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 2646 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 2646 1 x 2646 = 2646
2 and 1323 2 x 1323 = 2646
3 and 882 3 x 882 = 2646
6 and 441 6 x 441 = 2646
7 and 378 7 x 378 = 2646
9 and 294 9 x 294 = 2646
14 and 189 14 x 189 = 2646
18 and 147 18 x 147 = 2646
21 and 126 21 x 126 = 2646
27 and 98 27 x 98 = 2646
42 and 63 42 x 63 = 2646
49 and 54 49 x 54 = 2646

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 2646. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 2646 would be ( -1 , -2646 ) , ( -2 , -1323 ) , ( -3 , -882 ) , ( -6 , -441 ) , ( -7 , -378 ) , ( -9 , -294 ) , ( -14 , -189 ) , ( -18 , -147 ) , ( -21 , -126 ) , ( -27 , -98 ) , ( -42 , -63 ) and ( -49 , -54 ) .

#### 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.
