#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 281 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 281 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 281 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 281, which is 281. Divide 281 by 281 to obtain the quotient (1).
281 ÷ 281 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 281 is, 281 = 281.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 281 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 281 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 281 is, 281 = 281.

#### Introduction to Prime Factors?

In mathematics, prime numbers are defined as all those natural numbers greater than 1 that has only two divisors one being number 1 and the other being the number itself. When we express any number as the products of these prime numbers than these prime numbers become prime factors of that number. Eg- Prime Factors of 281 are 281.

#### 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.
• 1 is neither a prime number nor a composite number and also 1 is the factor of every given number. So, 1 is the factor of 281 but not a prime factor of 281.
