#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 487 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 487 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 487 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 487, which is 487. Divide 487 by 487 to obtain the quotient (1).
487 ÷ 487 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 487 is, 487 = 487.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 487 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 487 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 487 is, 487 = 487.

#### 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 487 are 487.

#### Properties of Prime Factors

• For any given number there is one and only one set of unique prime factors.
• 2 is the only even prime number. So, any given number can have only one even prime factor and that is 2.
• Two prime factors of a given number 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 487 but not a prime factor of 487.
