### Example: Find factors of 517

• Divide 517 by 1: 517 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 517 by 11: 517 ÷ 11 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 517 by 47: 517 ÷ 47 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 517 by 517: 517 ÷ 517 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 517 are 1, 11, 47, and 517

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 517 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 517 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 517 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 517, which is 11. Divide 517 by 11 to obtain the quotient (47).
517 ÷ 11 = 47
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (47).
47 ÷ 47 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 517 is, 517 = 11 x 47.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 517 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 517 is, 517 = 11 x 47.

#### 3. Find factors of 517 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 517 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 517 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 517 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 517 1 x 517 = 517
11 and 47 11 x 47 = 517

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 517. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 517 would be ( -1 , -517 ) , ( -11 , -47 ) .

#### 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, 11, 47, 517 are exact divisors of 517.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 517 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 517.
