#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 384 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 384 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 384 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 384, which is 2. Divide 384 by 2 to obtain the quotient (192).
384 ÷ 2 = 192
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (192).
192 ÷ 2 = 96
96 ÷ 2 = 48
48 ÷ 2 = 24
24 ÷ 2 = 12
12 ÷ 2 = 6
6 ÷ 2 = 3
3 ÷ 3 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 384 is, 384 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 384 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 384 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 384 is, 384 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3.

#### 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 384 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3.

#### 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 384 but not a prime factor of 384.
