Factors of 552 by Prime Factorization
 552 ÷ 2 = 276
 276 ÷ 2 = 138
 138 ÷ 2 = 69
Further dividing 69 by 2 gives a nonzero remainder. So we stop the process and continue dividing the number 69 by the next smallest prime factor. We stop ultimately if the next prime factor doesn't exist or when we can't divide any further.
So, the prime factorization of 552 can be written as 2^{3} × 3^{1} × 23^{1} where 2, 3, 23 are prime.

Factors of 552 Solved Examples

Example 1: How many factors are there for 552?
Solution:
The factors of 552 are too many, therefore if we can find the prime factorization of 552, then the total number of factors can be calculated using the formula shown below.
If the prime factorization of the number is a^{x} × b^{y} × c^{z} where a, b, c are prime, then the total number of factors can be given by (x + 1)(y + 1)(z + 1).
Prime Factorization of 552 = 2^{3} × 3^{1} × 23^{1}
Therefore, the total number of factors are (3 + 1) × (1 + 1) × (1 + 1) = 4 × 2 × 2 = 16 
Example 2: Find the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) and Highest Common Factor (HCF) of 552 and 253.
Solution:
The factors of 552 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 23, 24, 46, 69, 92, 138, 184, 276, 552 and factors of 253 are 1, 11, 23, 253.
Therefore, the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) of 552 and 253 is 6072 and Highest Common Factor (HCF) of 552 and 253 is 23. 
Example 3: Find if 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, 46, 92 and 290 are factors of 552.
Solution:
When we divide 552 by 290 it leaves a remainder. Therefore, the number 290 is not a factor of 552. All numbers except 290 are factors of 552.
