Factors of 450 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization of a number refers to representing a number in the form of products of its prime factors. Prime factors of any number can be found out by the following methods:
Method 1: Division method
Now let us find the prime factors of 450 by division method. Divide the number 450 with the smallest prime number, i.e. 2:
 450 ÷ 2 = 225
Again, divide 225 by 2:
 225 ÷ 2 = 112.5
This can not be a factor, so moving to the next prime number.
 225 ÷ 3 = 75
Again, divide 75 by 3:
 75 ÷ 3 = 25
Now, if we divide 25 by 3 we get a fraction number, which cannot be a factor. Now, proceed to the next prime numbers, i.e. 5.
 25 ÷ 5 = 5
Again, divide 5 by 5:
 5 ÷ 5 = 1
We have received 1 at the end and further, we cannot proceed with the division method. So, the prime factorization of 450 is, 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5 or 2 × 3^{2} × 5^{2} where, 2, 3, and 5 are the prime numbers.
Method 2: Factor tree
We will do this by factor tree:
So the prime factorization of 450 is: 450 = 2 × 3^{2} × 5^{2}.
Further, find the products of the multiplicands in different orders to obtain the composite factors of the number. The total factors can be written including both the prime and composite numbers together as, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 15, 18, 25, 30, 45, 50, 75, 90, 150, 225, and 450. Explore factors using illustrations and interactive examples:

Factors of 450 in Pairs
Pair factors of the number 450 are whole numbers that multiply to get the original number i.e., 450. Pair factors could be either positive or negative but not a fraction or decimal number. There are 18 pair factors of 450 and they are as follows:
Negative factors Pair  Positive factors Pair 
1 × 450= 450  1 × 450= 450 
2 × 225= 450  2 × 225= 450

Important Notes:
 Only whole numbers and integers can be converted to factors.
 Only composite numbers can have more than two factors.
 The smallest factor of a number is 1 and the largest factor of a number would be the number itself.
