### Example: Find factors of 277

• Divide 277 by 1: 277 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 277 by 277: 277 ÷ 277 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 277 are 1 and 277

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 277 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 277 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 277 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 277, which is 277. Divide 277 by 277 to obtain the quotient (1).
277 ÷ 277 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 277 is, 277 = 277.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 277 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 277 is, 277 = 277.

#### 3. Find factors of 277 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 277 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 277 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 277 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 277 1 x 277 = 277

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 277. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 277 would be ( -1 , -277 ) , .

#### How do you explain factors?

In mathematics, a factor is a number or also it can be an algebraic expression that divides another number or any expression completely and that too without leaving any remainder. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of factors
