#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 944 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 944 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 944 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 944, which is 2. Divide 944 by 2 to obtain the quotient (472).
944 ÷ 2 = 472
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (472).
472 ÷ 2 = 236
236 ÷ 2 = 118
118 ÷ 2 = 59
59 ÷ 59 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 944 is, 944 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 59.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 944 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 944 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 944 is, 944 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 59.

#### 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 944 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 59.

#### 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.
