#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 68172 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 68172 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 68172 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 68172, which is 2. Divide 68172 by 2 to obtain the quotient (34086).
68172 ÷ 2 = 34086
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (34086).
34086 ÷ 2 = 17043
17043 ÷ 3 = 5681
5681 ÷ 13 = 437
437 ÷ 19 = 23
23 ÷ 23 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 68172 is, 68172 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 13 x 19 x 23.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 68172 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 68172 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 68172 is, 68172 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 13 x 19 x 23.

#### 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 68172 are 2 x 2 x 3 x 13 x 19 x 23.

#### 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 68172 but not a prime factor of 68172.
