Factors of 192 By Prime Factorization
Prime factorization is a way of expressing a number as a product of its prime factors.
Examples: Follow the steps given below to find the factors of 192 using prime factorization:
 Step 1: Find the smallest prime that exactly divides 192.
 Step 2: Write the resultant after dividing 192 by the smallest prime in one column.
 Step 3: Again find the smallest prime that exactly divides the resultant obtained in step 2 and write the resultant.
 Repeat step 3 until you reach number 1.
From this figure, you can observe that the prime factors of 192 are 2 and 3. So, the prime factorization of 192 is 192 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3.
We can also see that 192, 96, 48, 24, 12 are the composite factors of 192.
 Q: Can you see how 32 = 2^{5}, 16= 2^{4 }are also factors of 192?
 Q: Can you find the other composite factors of 192?
Recollect that by Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, there is only one unique way to represent a number by the product of its primes.
Factors of 192 in Pairs
All the factor pairs of 192 are:
 1 × 192 = 192
 2 × 96 = 192

Example 2: Sussane wants to paint a rectangular cardboard piece. She knows that the area to be painted is 192 sq. inches. The length of the piece is 16 inches. What would be the breadth of this piece?
Solution:
We know that the area of the rectangle is the product of its length and breadth. So, we have,
 Area of Rectangle = Length × Breadth
 192 = 16 × Breadth
 Breadth= 192/16=12
So, the breadth of the piece is 12 inches.
