How to find the Factors of 7

  • 7 is a prime number.
  • Prime factorization: 7 is prime.
  • The exponent in the prime factorization is 1. Adding one to that exponent we get (1 + 1) = 2. Therefore 7 has exactly 2 factors.
  • The factors of 7 are: 1 and 7
  • Factor pairs of 7 are: 1x7
  • 7 has no exponents greater than 1 in its prime factorization, so √7 cannot be simplified.
