#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 21904 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 21904 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 21904 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 21904, which is 2. Divide 21904 by 2 to obtain the quotient (10952).
21904 ÷ 2 = 10952
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (10952).
10952 ÷ 2 = 5476
5476 ÷ 2 = 2738
2738 ÷ 2 = 1369
1369 ÷ 37 = 37
37 ÷ 37 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 21904 is, 21904 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 37 x 37.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 21904 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 21904 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 21904 is, 21904 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 37 x 37.

#### 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 21904 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 37 x 37.

#### 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 21904 but not a prime factor of 21904.
