### Example: Find factors of 844

• Divide 844 by 1: 844 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 844 by 2: 844 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 844 by 4: 844 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 844 by 211: 844 ÷ 211 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 844 by 422: 844 ÷ 422 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 844 by 844: 844 ÷ 844 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 844 are 1, 2, 4, 211, 422, and 844

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 844 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 844 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 844 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 844, which is 2. Divide 844 by 2 to obtain the quotient (422).
844 ÷ 2 = 422
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (422).
422 ÷ 2 = 211
211 ÷ 211 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 844 is, 844 = 2 x 2 x 211.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 844 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 844 is, 844 = 2 x 2 x 211.

#### 3. Find factors of 844 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 844 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 844 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 844 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 844 1 x 844 = 844
2 and 422 2 x 422 = 844
4 and 211 4 x 211 = 844

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 844. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 844 would be ( -1 , -844 ) , ( -2 , -422 ) and ( -4 , -211 ) .

#### 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. 844 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 844.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 844 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, 211, 422, 844 are exact divisors of 844.
• Factors of 844 are 1, 2, 4, 211, 422, 844. Each factor divides 844 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 211, 422, 844 are all less than or equal to 844.
