#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 9438 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 9438 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 9438 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 9438, which is 2. Divide 9438 by 2 to obtain the quotient (4719).
9438 ÷ 2 = 4719
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (4719).
4719 ÷ 3 = 1573
1573 ÷ 11 = 143
143 ÷ 11 = 13
13 ÷ 13 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 9438 is, 9438 = 2 x 3 x 11 x 11 x 13.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 9438 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 9438 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 9438 is, 9438 = 2 x 3 x 11 x 11 x 13.

#### 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 9438 are 2 x 3 x 11 x 11 x 13.

#### 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.
