### Example: Find factors of 453

• Divide 453 by 1: 453 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 453 by 3: 453 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 453 by 151: 453 ÷ 151 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 453 by 453: 453 ÷ 453 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 453 are 1, 3, 151, and 453

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 453 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 453 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 453 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 453, which is 3. Divide 453 by 3 to obtain the quotient (151).
453 ÷ 3 = 151
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (151).
151 ÷ 151 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 453 is, 453 = 3 x 151.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 453 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 453 is, 453 = 3 x 151.

#### 3. Find factors of 453 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 453 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 453 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 453 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 453 1 x 453 = 453
3 and 151 3 x 151 = 453

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 453. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 453 would be ( -1 , -453 ) , ( -3 , -151 ) .

#### What is the definition of factors?

In mathematics, factors are number, algebraic expressions which when multiplied together produce desired product. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of factors
