### Example: Find factors of 634

• Divide 634 by 1: 634 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 634 by 2: 634 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 634 by 317: 634 ÷ 317 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 634 by 634: 634 ÷ 634 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 634 are 1, 2, 317, and 634

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 634 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 634 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 634 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 634, which is 2. Divide 634 by 2 to obtain the quotient (317).
634 ÷ 2 = 317
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (317).
317 ÷ 317 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 634 is, 634 = 2 x 317.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 634 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 634 is, 634 = 2 x 317.

#### 3. Find factors of 634 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 634 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 634 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 634 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 634 1 x 634 = 634
2 and 317 2 x 317 = 634

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 634. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 634 would be ( -1 , -634 ) , ( -2 , -317 ) .

#### How can we define factors?

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

#### Properties of factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 634 is a factor of itself.
• 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, 317, 634 are exact divisors of 634.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 634.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 634 x 0 = 0.
