What are the factors and prime factors of 51?

51 is a composite number because it has factors other than 1 and itself. It is not a prime number.The 4 factors of 51 are 1, 3, 17, and 51.The factor pairs of 51 are 1 x 51 and 3 x 17.The proper factors of 51 are 1, 3, and 17 or,if the definition you are using excludes 1, they are 3 and 17.The prime factors of 51 are 3 and 17.The 2 distinct prime factors (listing each prime factor only once) of 51 are also 3 and 17.The prime factorization of 51 is 3 x 17.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.


What is the greatest common factor of 51 and 119?

The factors of 51 are 1, 3, 17, and 51. The factors of 119 are 1, 7, 17, and 119. The factors they have in common are 1 and 17. Therefore the greatest common factor is 17. The greatest common factor can also be determined from the prime factors. The prime factors of 51 are 3 and 17. The prime factors of 119 are 7 and 17. The prime factors they have in common are a single 17, so the greatest common factor is 17.
