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

The 6 factors of 212 are 1, 2, 4, 53, 106, and 212.

The factor pairs of 212 are 1 x 212, 2 x 106, 4 x 53.

The proper factors of 212 are 1, 2, 4, 53, and 106 or,

if the definition you are using excludes 1, they are 2, 4, 53, and 106.

The prime factors of 212 are 2, 2, and 53. 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 of 212 are 2 and 53.

The prime factorization of 212 is 2 x 2 x 53 or, in exponential form, 22 x 53.
