#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 1309 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 1309 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 1309 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 1309, which is 7. Divide 1309 by 7 to obtain the quotient (187).
1309 ÷ 7 = 187
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (187).
187 ÷ 11 = 17
17 ÷ 17 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 1309 is, 1309 = 7 x 11 x 17.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 1309 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 1309 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 1309 is, 1309 = 7 x 11 x 17.

#### What does Prime factor of a number mean?

A prime number in mathematics is defined as any natural number greater than 1, that is not divisible by any number except 1 and the number itself. When we express any number as the product of these prime numbers than these prime numbers become prime factors of that number. Eg- Prime Factors of 1309 are 7 x 11 x 17.

#### Properties of Prime Factors

• Prime factors are the set of factors that are unique to the number given.
• 2 is the only even prime factor any number can have.
• Two prime factors are always coprime to each other.
