### Example: Find factors of 628

• Divide 628 by 1: 628 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 628 by 2: 628 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 628 by 4: 628 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 628 by 157: 628 ÷ 157 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 628 by 314: 628 ÷ 314 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 628 by 628: 628 ÷ 628 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 628 are 1, 2, 4, 157, 314, and 628

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 628 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 628 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 628 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 628, which is 2. Divide 628 by 2 to obtain the quotient (314).
628 ÷ 2 = 314
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (314).
314 ÷ 2 = 157
157 ÷ 157 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 628 is, 628 = 2 x 2 x 157.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 628 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 628 is, 628 = 2 x 2 x 157.

#### 3. Find factors of 628 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 628 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 628 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 628 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 628 1 x 628 = 628
2 and 314 2 x 314 = 628
4 and 157 4 x 157 = 628

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 628. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 628 would be ( -1 , -628 ) , ( -2 , -314 ) and ( -4 , -157 ) .

#### 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

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 628 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 628.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 628 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, 2, 4, 157, 314, 628 are exact divisors of 628.
• Factors of 628 are 1, 2, 4, 157, 314, 628. Each factor divides 628 without leaving a remainder.
