What Are the Factors of 34?
Before we learn about factors of 34, let's learn about factors. Factors of 34 are all the numbers which on multiplying give the value 34.
How to Calculate the Factors of 34?
Let's learn how to calculate factors of 34.
 Step 1: Write down the number to be factored, which is 34.
 Step 2: Find the two numbers whose product gives 34.
34 is written as a product of 2 and 17.
2 is a prime number. Hence, it can only be factored as 2 and 1.
17 is a prime number. Hence, it can be factored as 17 and 1.
Hence, the factors of 34 are 1, 2, 17, and 34.

 Factors of 75  The factors of 75 are 1, 3, 5, 15, 25, 75
Tips and Tricks:
 1 is the smallest factor of every number. Hence it is a factor of 34.
 34 is an even number. Hence 2 is one of its factors.
Factors of 34 by Prime Factorization
Let's learn a bit about prime factorization before we learn how to find the factors of 34.
Let's learn how to find factors using prime factorization.
 Step 1: Write the pair of factors that, on multiplication, give the required number.
 Step 2: Check whether each factor is prime or not.
 Step 3: Follow the below criterion to differentiate between the factorization procedure.
The criterion to differentiate between the procedure of factorization is given as follows:
 If both the numbers are prime, they can be multiplied as is.
 If one among them is prime and another one is composite, then the composite number is dissociated into its factors.
 If both the numbers are composite, they can be dissociated into factors.
Factors of 34 by prime factorization are given by using the following steps.
 Step 1: Write the pair of factors that, on multiplication, give the required number.
34 can be factored as a product of 2 and 17.
 Step 2: See the factors, whether each one of them is prime or not.
2 is a prime number and can be dissociated as a product of 2 and 1.
17 is a prime number and can be dissociated as a product of 17 and 1.
 Step 3: As per the criterion,
34 can thereby be written as 34 = 2 × 17.
The prime factors of 34 can also be written as 34 = 2 × 17.
Factors of 34 in Pairs
The pair factors of 34 can be given as below:
Product of Factors  Pair Factors 

1 × 34  1, 34 
2 × 17  2, 17 
The factors given above are all positive pair factors. It is possible to have negative pair factors as well because the product of two negative numbers is a positive number.
Let's have a look at negative pair factors.
Product of Factors  Pair Factors 

1 × 34  1, 34 
2 × 17  2, 17 
Factors of 34 Solved Examples

Example 1: James owns a food truck burger. He can make 1 burger in 10 minutes. How much time will it take him to make 34 burgers?
Solution:
James can make 1 burger in 10 minutes.
The amount of time needed for James to make 34 burgers will be given by,34 × 10 = 340
Hence, James will take 340 minutes to make 34 burgers.

Example 2: Catherine works in a supermarket. She stands at one of the counters for billing. She found that the amount of money collected at the end of the day at her counter was $3400. If each person paid $50, how many customers came to her counter for billing?
Solution:
Catherine found that the amount of money collected at the end of the day was $3400.
Each person paid $50.The number of customers who came to her counter for billing are 3400/50 = 68.
Hence, 68 customers came to Catherine for billing. 
Example 3: Find the product of all the prime factors of 34.
Solution:
Since, the prime factors of 34 are 2, 17. Therefore, the product of prime factors = 2 × 17 = 34.
