#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 1612 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 1612 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 1612 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 1612, which is 2. Divide 1612 by 2 to obtain the quotient (806).
1612 ÷ 2 = 806
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (806).
806 ÷ 2 = 403
403 ÷ 13 = 31
31 ÷ 31 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 1612 is, 1612 = 2 x 2 x 13 x 31.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 1612 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 1612 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 1612 is, 1612 = 2 x 2 x 13 x 31.

#### How do you define Prime Factors of a number?

Prime numbers, in mathematics are all those natural numbers greater than 1 that have exactly 2 factors which are 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 1612 are 2 x 2 x 13 x 31.

#### Properties of Prime Factors

• For any given number there is one and only one set of unique prime factors.
• Any number can have only 1 even prime factor and that is number 2.
• Two prime factors are always coprime to each other.
• 1 is the factor of any given number, but 1 is neither a prime number nor a composite number. So, 1 is the factor of 1612 but not a prime factor of 1612.
