To get the prime factorization of 189, we use two methods:
 Method 1: Factor Tree Method
 Method 2: UpsideDown Division Method
Method 1: Factor Tree Method
The factor tree for 189 is:
Method 2: UpsideDown Division Method
On dividing 189 by its smallest prime factor which is 3, we get
189/3 = 63
63 is divided by its smallest prime factor and the quotient is obtained. This process is repeated till we get the quotient as 1. The prime factorization of 189 is shown as:
Hence, the prime factors of 189 are 3 and 7. The prime factorization of 189 is 3 × 3 × 3 × 7.
Factors of 189 in Pairs

Factors of 189 Solved Examples

Example 1: Andy has to determine whether 189 and 188 have any common factors. Help him find them.
Solution:
The factors of 189 are 1, 3, 7, 9, 21, 27, 63, and 189.
The factors of 188 are 1, 2, 4, 47, 94, and 188.Hence, the common factor of 189 and 188 is 1.

Example 2: Can you determine whether 13 a factor of 189 or not?
Solution:
For finding whether 13 is a factor of 189 or not, we need to divide 189 by 13.
On dividing 189 by 13 we get 14 as the quotient and 7 as the remainder. This shows that 189 is not entirely divisible by 13.Hence, 13 is not a factor of 189.
