83: Calculate all the factors (divisors) of the number (proper, improper and the prime factors)

The factors (divisors) of the number 83

83 is a prime number and cannot be prime factorized (factored into other prime factors). So what are all the factors (divisors) of the number 83?

Prime numbers

The natural numbers that are divisible (that are divided evenly) only by 1 and themselves are called prime numbers. Examples: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17.

A composite number is a natural number that has at least one factor other than 1 and itself. Examples: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14.

1 is neither a prime nor a composite number.


The prime factorization of a number A (the decomposition of a number into prime factors, breaking a number down into prime numbers) = dividing the number A into smaller, prime numbers. Then, the number A results from the multiplication of these prime numbers.

But a prime number cannot be factored (decomposed) into other prime numbers, only a composite number can.



The final answer - scroll down...

83 has 2 factors (divisors): 1 and 83.
83 and 1 are called by some authors improper factors (improper divisors).

Calculate all the divisors (factors) of the given numbers

How to calculate (find) all the factors (divisors) of a number:

Break down the number into prime factors. Then multiply its prime factors in all their unique combinations, that give different results.

To calculate the common factors of two numbers:

The common factors (divisors) of two numbers are all the factors of the greatest common factor, gcf.

Calculate the greatest (highest) common factor (divisor) of the two numbers, gcf (hcf, gcd).

Break down the GCF into prime factors. Then multiply its prime factors in all their unique combinations, that give different results.

Factors (divisors), common factors (common divisors), the greatest common factor, GCF (also called the greatest common divisor, GCD, or the highest common factor, HCF)
