# Factors Of 54 – Find Prime Factorization

## Factors Of 54

The factors of 54 can be divided completely or equally by 54. It is called a pair factor when the 54 is produced by multiplying two factors. Each factor divides the number equally.

There can be no fraction for these factors.

Factors of 54:

1,2,3,6,9,18,27 and 54

Consequently, the whole numbers in the number 54 that are not fractions or decimals are called factor pairs. We will use the factorization method to determine the factors of 54.

Factors have the following properties:

• Factors are the exact divisors of any number
• 1 is the factor of every number.
• There must always be a factor less than or equal to the number itself
• One of the greatest factors of a number is the number itself.

## What are the Factors of 54?

In addition, factors can divide an original number completely.

Factors of 54

1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, and 54

## What are the Factors of-54?

In Addition, We can get -54 by having (-1, 54), (-2, 27), (-3, 18), and (-6, 9) as a pair of factors. Similarly, we can also get -54 by having (1, -54), (2, -27), (3, -18), and (6, -9) as a pair of factors.

## How to Calculate Factors of 54?

Moreover, if we want to find the factors of 54, we have to divide 54 by all natural numbers between 1 and 54.

• 54 ÷ 1 = 54
• 54 ÷ 2 = 27
• 54 ÷ 3 = 18
• 54 ÷ 6 = 9

## Prime Factors of 54 By Division Method

It must have prime factors since 54 is a composite number. In the following section, we will see how to determine prime factors of 54.

• We start by dividing 54 by the smallest prime factor, say 2.

54 ÷ 2 = 27

• In this case, dividing 54 by 3 will result in a fractional number, which cannot be a factor, and you must move on to the next prime factor, say 3.

27 ÷ 3 = 9

9 ÷ 3 = 3

3 ÷ 3 = 1

• During the division process, we finally received number 1. As a result, we can’t proceed further. Hence, there are two prime factors of 54, 2 x 33 or 3 x 3 x 3, where 2 and 3 are the prime numbers.

## Pair Factors of 54

Similarly, You can find the pair factors by multiplying two numbers in a pair to get 54; we have the following numbers as follows:

1 × 54 = 54, (1, 54)  is a pair factor of 54.

2 × 27 = 54, (2, 27)  is a pair factor of 54

3 × 18 = 54, (3, 18)  is a pair factor of 54

6 ×   9  = 54, (6, 9)  is a pair factor of 54

As a result, the positive pair factors are (1, 54), (2, 27), (3, 18), and (6, 9).

## Solved Examples

Q.1: On a table, there are 54 apples. Roy must distribute them evenly among his three children. What amount of apples will each child get?

Solution: Number of apples = 54

Number of children = 3

Each child will get = 54/3 = 18 apples.

Q.2: Write two times each factor of 54.

Solution: Since 54 has the factors 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, 54.

As a result, we get the following when we multiply two by each factor:

2,4,6,12,18,36,54 and 108

Q.3: How much is the total of the factors of 54?

Solution: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, 54 are the factors of 54

In other words, by adding all the factors together, we find that;

1+2+3+6+9+18+27+54 = 120
