## How to find the Factors of 2

**2**is a prime number.- Prime factorization:
**2**is prime. - The exponent in the prime factorization is 1. Adding one to that exponent we get (1 + 1) = 2. Therefore
**2**has exactly 2 factors. - The factors of
**2**are: 1 and 2 - Factor pairs of
**2**are: 1x2 **2**has no exponents greater than 1 in its prime factorization, so**√2**cannot be simplified.
