### Example: Find factors of 587

• Divide 587 by 1: 587 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 587 by 587: 587 ÷ 587 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 587 are 1 and 587

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 587 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 587 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 587 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 587, which is 587. Divide 587 by 587 to obtain the quotient (1).
587 ÷ 587 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 587 is, 587 = 587.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 587 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 587 is, 587 = 587.

#### 3. Find factors of 587 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 587 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 587 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 587 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 587 1 x 587 = 587

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 587. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 587 would be ( -1 , -587 ) , .

#### 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 number is a factor of zero (0), since 587 x 0 = 0.
• 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, 587 are exact divisors of 587.
• Factors of 587 are 1, 587. Each factor divides 587 without leaving a remainder.

#### Examples of Factors

Joy wants to calculate mean of all the factors of 587. Help him in finding the mean of 587.

Factors of 587 are 1, 587.
To calculate the mean we need to calculate the sum of factors first. Sum of factors of 587 is 1 + 587 = 588.
Hence, the mean of factors of 587 is 588 ÷ 2 = 294.00.
