164 is a composite number because it has factors other than 1 and itself. It is not a Prime number.

The 6 factors of 164 are 1, 2, 4, 41, 82, and 164.

The factor pairs of 164 are 1 x 164, 2 x 82, and 4 x 41.

The proper factors of 164 are 1, 2, 4, 41, and 82 or,

if the definition you are using excludes 1, they are 2, 4, 41, and 82.

The prime factors of 164 are 2, 2, and 41. Note: There is repetition of these factors, so if the prime factors are being listed instead of the prime factorization, usually only the distinct prime factors are listed.

The distinct prime factors (listing each prime factor only once) of 164 are 2 and 41.

The prime factorization of 164 is 2 x 2 x 41 or, in exponential form, 22 x 41.

NOTE: There cannot be common factors, a greatest common factor, or a least common multiple because "common" refers to factors or multiples that two or more numbers have in common.
