#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 442 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 442 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 442 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 442, which is 2. Divide 442 by 2 to obtain the quotient (221).
442 ÷ 2 = 221
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (221).
221 ÷ 13 = 17
17 ÷ 17 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 442 is, 442 = 2 x 13 x 17.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 442 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 442 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 442 is, 442 = 2 x 13 x 17.

#### How do you define Prime Factors of a number?

Prime numbers, in mathematics are all those natural numbers greater than 1 that have exactly 2 factors which are 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 442 are 2 x 13 x 17.

#### Properties of Prime Factors

• Two prime factors of a given number are always coprime to each other.
• 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 442 but not a prime factor of 442.

• Is 442 a prime number?
