### Example: Find factors of 417

• Divide 417 by 1: 417 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 417 by 3: 417 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 417 by 139: 417 ÷ 139 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 417 by 417: 417 ÷ 417 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 417 are 1, 3, 139, and 417

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 417 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 417 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 417 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 417, which is 3. Divide 417 by 3 to obtain the quotient (139).
417 ÷ 3 = 139
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (139).
139 ÷ 139 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 417 is, 417 = 3 x 139.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 417 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 417 is, 417 = 3 x 139.

#### 3. Find factors of 417 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 417 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 417 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 417 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 417 1 x 417 = 417
3 and 139 3 x 139 = 417

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 417. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 417 would be ( -1 , -417 ) , ( -3 , -139 ) .

#### 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 factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 3, 139, 417 are exact divisors of 417.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 417 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 417.
