#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 481 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 481 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 481 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 481, which is 13. Divide 481 by 13 to obtain the quotient (37).
481 ÷ 13 = 37
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (37).
37 ÷ 37 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 481 is, 481 = 13 x 37.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 481 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 481 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 481 is, 481 = 13 x 37.

#### 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 481 are 13 x 37.

#### 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 481 but not a prime factor of 481.
