#### 2. Steps to find factors of 5210 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 5210 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 5210 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 5210, which is 2. Divide 5210 by 2 to obtain the quotient (2605).
5210 ÷ 2 = 2605
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (2605).
2605 ÷ 5 = 521
521 ÷ 521 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 5210 is, 5210 = 2 x 5 x 521.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 5210 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 5210 is, 5210 = 2 x 5 x 521.

#### 3. Find factors of 5210 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 5210 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 5210 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 5210 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 5210 1 x 5210 = 5210
2 and 2605 2 x 2605 = 5210
5 and 1042 5 x 1042 = 5210
10 and 521 10 x 521 = 5210

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 5210. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 5210 would be ( -1 , -5210 ) , ( -2 , -2605 ) , ( -5 , -1042 ) and ( -10 , -521 ) .

#### What are factors?

In mathematics, a factor is that number which divides into another number exactly, without leaving a remainder. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 5210 is a factor of itself.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
