#### 2. Steps to find factors of 4518 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 4518 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 4518 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 4518, which is 2. Divide 4518 by 2 to obtain the quotient (2259).
4518 ÷ 2 = 2259
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (2259).
2259 ÷ 3 = 753
753 ÷ 3 = 251
251 ÷ 251 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 4518 is, 4518 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 251.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 4518 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 4518 is, 4518 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 251.

#### 3. Find factors of 4518 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 4518 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 4518 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 4518 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 4518 1 x 4518 = 4518
2 and 2259 2 x 2259 = 4518
3 and 1506 3 x 1506 = 4518
6 and 753 6 x 753 = 4518
9 and 502 9 x 502 = 4518
18 and 251 18 x 251 = 4518

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 4518. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 4518 would be ( -1 , -4518 ) , ( -2 , -2259 ) , ( -3 , -1506 ) , ( -6 , -753 ) , ( -9 , -502 ) and ( -18 , -251 ) .
