#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 16524 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 16524 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 16524 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 16524, which is 2. Divide 16524 by 2 to obtain the quotient (8262).
16524 ÷ 2 = 8262
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (8262).
8262 ÷ 2 = 4131
4131 ÷ 3 = 1377
1377 ÷ 3 = 459
459 ÷ 3 = 153
153 ÷ 3 = 51
51 ÷ 3 = 17
17 ÷ 17 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 16524 is, 16524 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 17.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 16524 by Factor Tree Method

So, the prime factorization of 16524 is, 16524 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 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 16524 are 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 17.

#### 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 16524 but not a prime factor of 16524.
