### Example: Find factors of 2865

• Divide 2865 by 1: 2865 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 2865 by 3: 2865 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 2865 by 5: 2865 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 2865 by 15: 2865 ÷ 15 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 2865 by 191: 2865 ÷ 191 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 2865 by 573: 2865 ÷ 573 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 2865 by 955: 2865 ÷ 955 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 2865 by 2865: 2865 ÷ 2865 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 2865 are 1, 3, 5, 15, 191, 573, 955, and 2865

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 2865 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 2865 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 2865 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 2865, which is 3. Divide 2865 by 3 to obtain the quotient (955).
2865 ÷ 3 = 955
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (955).
955 ÷ 5 = 191
191 ÷ 191 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 2865 is, 2865 = 3 x 5 x 191.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 2865 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 2865 is, 2865 = 3 x 5 x 191.

#### 3. Find factors of 2865 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 2865 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 2865 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 2865 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 2865 1 x 2865 = 2865
3 and 955 3 x 955 = 2865
5 and 573 5 x 573 = 2865
15 and 191 15 x 191 = 2865

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 2865. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 2865 would be ( -1 , -2865 ) , ( -3 , -955 ) , ( -5 , -573 ) and ( -15 , -191 ) .

#### 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.
