### Example: Find factors of 914

• Divide 914 by 1: 914 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 914 by 2: 914 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 914 by 457: 914 ÷ 457 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 914 by 914: 914 ÷ 914 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 914 are 1, 2, 457, and 914

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 914 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 914 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 914 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 914, which is 2. Divide 914 by 2 to obtain the quotient (457).
914 ÷ 2 = 457
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (457).
457 ÷ 457 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 914 is, 914 = 2 x 457.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 914 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 914 is, 914 = 2 x 457.

#### 3. Find factors of 914 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 914 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 914 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 914 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 914 1 x 914 = 914
2 and 457 2 x 457 = 914

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 914. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 914 would be ( -1 , -914 ) , ( -2 , -457 ) .

#### 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. 914 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, 457, 914 are exact divisors of 914.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 914.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 914 x 0 = 0.
