Factors of 230 by Prime Factorization
 230 ÷ 2 = 115
Further dividing 115 by 2 gives a nonzero remainder. So we stop the process and continue dividing the number 115 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 230 can be written as 2^{1} × 5^{1} × 23^{1} where 2, 5, 23 are prime.
Factors of 230 in Pairs
Pair factors of 230 are the pairs of numbers that when multiplied give the product 230. The factors of 230 in pairs are:
 1 × 230 = (1, 230)
 2 × 115 = (2, 115)
 5 × 46 = (5, 46)
 10 × 23 = (10, 23)
Negative pair factors of 230 are:
 1 × 230 = (1, 230)
 2 × 115 = (2, 115)
 5 × 46 = (5, 46)
 10 × 23 = (10, 23)
NOTE: If (a, b) is a pair factor of a number then (b, a) is also a pair factor of that number.
