#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 734 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 734 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 734 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 734, which is 2. Divide 734 by 2 to obtain the quotient (367).
734 ÷ 2 = 367
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (367).
367 ÷ 367 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 734 is, 734 = 2 x 367.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 734 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 734 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 734 is, 734 = 2 x 367.

#### What does Prime factor of a number mean?

A prime number in mathematics is defined as any natural number greater than 1, that is not divisible by any number except 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 734 are 2 x 367.

#### Properties of Prime Factors

• Two prime factors of a given number are always coprime to each other.
• 2 is the only even prime factor any number can have.
• Two prime factors are always coprime to each other.
