#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 8878 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 8878 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 8878 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 8878, which is 2. Divide 8878 by 2 to obtain the quotient (4439).
8878 ÷ 2 = 4439
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (4439).
4439 ÷ 23 = 193
193 ÷ 193 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 8878 is, 8878 = 2 x 23 x 193.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 8878 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 8878 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 8878 is, 8878 = 2 x 23 x 193.

#### 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 8878 are 2 x 23 x 193.

#### 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 8878 but not a prime factor of 8878.
