## How to find the Factors of 5

**5**is a prime number.- Prime factorization:
**5**is prime. - The exponent in the prime factorization is 1. Adding one to that exponent we get (1 + 1) = 2. Therefore
**5**has exactly 2 factors. - The factors of
**5**are: 1 and 5 - Factor pairs of
**5**are: 1x5 **5**has no exponents greater than 1 in its prime factorization, so**√5**cannot be simplified.
