Factors of 600 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization is referred to as expressing a composite number as the product of its prime factors. To get the prime factorization of 600, we can use two methods:
 Method 1: Factor Tree Method
 Method 2: UpsideDown Division Method
Method 1: Factor Tree Method
The factor tree of 600 is:
Method 2: UpsideDown Division Method
On dividing 600 by its smallest prime factor which is 2 we get,
600/2 = 30
300 is now 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 600:
Hence, the prime factors of 600 are 2, 3, and 5.
The prime factorization of 600 is 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5.

Factors of 600 Solved Examples

Example 1: Shawn has a box of length 20 inches and breadth 25 inches. Is its area equal to 600 square inches?
Solution:
The area of the box of length 20 inches and 25 inches is given by the formula: area = length × breadth = 20 × 25 = 500 square inches.
Hence, the area of the box is not equal to 600 square inches. 
Example 2: If the product of two factors is 600 and one of the factors is 75. Can you find which is the other factor?
Solution:
We know, 600 = Factor 1 × Factor 2
Hence, 600 =(75) × Factor 2Factor 2 = 600/(75) =(8)
Hence, the other factor is 8.
