#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 8602 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 8602 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 8602 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 8602, which is 2. Divide 8602 by 2 to obtain the quotient (4301).
8602 ÷ 2 = 4301
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (4301).
4301 ÷ 11 = 391
391 ÷ 17 = 23
23 ÷ 23 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 8602 is, 8602 = 2 x 11 x 17 x 23.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 8602 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 8602 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 8602 is, 8602 = 2 x 11 x 17 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 8602 are 2 x 11 x 17 x 23.

#### 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.
• 1 is neither a prime number nor a composite number and also 1 is the factor of every given number. So, 1 is the factor of 8602 but not a prime factor of 8602.
