### Example: Find factors of 422

• Divide 422 by 1: 422 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 422 by 2: 422 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 422 by 211: 422 ÷ 211 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 422 by 422: 422 ÷ 422 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 422 are 1, 2, 211, and 422

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 422 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 422 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 422 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 422, which is 2. Divide 422 by 2 to obtain the quotient (211).
422 ÷ 2 = 211
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (211).
211 ÷ 211 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 422 is, 422 = 2 x 211.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 422 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 422 is, 422 = 2 x 211.

#### 3. Find factors of 422 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 422 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 422 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 422 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 422 1 x 422 = 422
2 and 211 2 x 211 = 422

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 422. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 422 would be ( -1 , -422 ) , ( -2 , -211 ) .

#### 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

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 422 is a factor of itself.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 2, 211, 422 are exact divisors of 422.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 422.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 422 x 0 = 0.
