#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 61 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 61 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 61 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 61, which is 61. Divide 61 by 61 to obtain the quotient (1).
61 ÷ 61 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 61 is, 61 = 61.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 61 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 61 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 61 is, 61 = 61.

#### 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 61 are 61.

#### 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.
