#### 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 280544 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 11 x 797.

#### 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.
