#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 8464 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 8464 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 8464 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 8464, which is 2. Divide 8464 by 2 to obtain the quotient (4232).
8464 ÷ 2 = 4232
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (4232).
4232 ÷ 2 = 2116
2116 ÷ 2 = 1058
1058 ÷ 2 = 529
529 ÷ 23 = 23
23 ÷ 23 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 8464 is, 8464 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 23 x 23.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 8464 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 8464 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 8464 is, 8464 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 23 x 23.

#### 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 8464 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 23 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 8464 but not a prime factor of 8464.
