### Example: Find factors of 3127

• Divide 3127 by 1: 3127 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 3127 by 53: 3127 ÷ 53 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 3127 by 59: 3127 ÷ 59 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 3127 by 3127: 3127 ÷ 3127 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 3127 are 1, 53, 59, and 3127

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 3127 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 3127 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 3127 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 3127, which is 53. Divide 3127 by 53 to obtain the quotient (59).
3127 ÷ 53 = 59
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (59).
59 ÷ 59 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 3127 is, 3127 = 53 x 59.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 3127 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 3127 is, 3127 = 53 x 59.

#### 3. Find factors of 3127 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 3127 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 3127 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 3127 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 3127 1 x 3127 = 3127
53 and 59 53 x 59 = 3127

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 3127. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 3127 would be ( -1 , -3127 ) , ( -53 , -59 ) .

#### 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

• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 3127 x 0 = 0.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
