Factors of 578 by Prime Factorization
 578 ÷ 2 = 289
Further dividing 289 by 2 gives a nonzero remainder. So we stop the process and continue dividing the number 289 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 578 can be written as 2^{1} × 17^{2} where 2, 17 are prime.
Factors of 578 in Pairs
Pair factors of 578 are the pairs of numbers that when multiplied give the product 578. The factors of 578 in pairs are:
 1 × 578 = (1, 578)
 2 × 289 = (2, 289)
 17 × 34 = (17, 34)
Negative pair factors of 578 are:
 1 × 578 = (1, 578)
 2 × 289 = (2, 289)
 17 × 34 = (17, 34)
NOTE: If (a, b) is a pair factor of a number then (b, a) is also a pair factor of that number.
