#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 984 by Division Method

To find the primefactors of 984 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 984 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 984, which is 2. Divide 984 by 2 to obtain the quotient (492).
984 ÷ 2 = 492
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (492).
492 ÷ 2 = 246
246 ÷ 2 = 123
123 ÷ 3 = 41
41 ÷ 41 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 984 is, 984 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 41.

#### Steps to find Prime Factors of 984 by Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 984 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 984 is, 984 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 41.

#### 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 984 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 41.

#### 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 984 but not a prime factor of 984.
