#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 668 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 668 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 668 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 668, which is 2. Divide 668 by 2 to obtain the quotient (334).
668 ÷ 2 = 334
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (334).
334 ÷ 2 = 167
167 ÷ 167 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 668 is, 668 = 2 x 2 x 167.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 668 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 668 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 668 is, 668 = 2 x 2 x 167.

#### What does Prime factor in mathematics mean?

Prime numbers, in mathematics are all those whole numbers greater than 1 having exactly two divisors that is 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 668 are 2 x 2 x 167.

#### 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 668 but not a prime factor of 668.
