The divisors of 2 are 1 and 2. As it has two divisors 1 and the number 2 itself, 2 is a prime number. In this post, we will learn about divisors of 2 along with related queries. We have the following.

- Divisors of 2: 1, 2
- Prime divisors of 2: 2 only
- Sum of divisors of 2: 4
- Product of divisors of 2: 2

## What are the Divisors of 2

A number is said to be a divisor of 2 if it divides the number 2 without a remainder. In other words, we have:

2 ÷ its divisor = an integer.

Using the above definition, we get that 1 and 2 are the divisors of 2.

## How to Find Divisors of 2

We know that each divisor of 2 is less than or equal to 2. So to find the divisors of 2, we will divide 2 by the numbers 1 and 2.

2 ÷ 1 = 2, an integer.

2 ÷ 2 =1, an integer.

So by the above definition of divisors, the divisors of 2 are 1 and 2.

Thus the total number of divisors of 2 is 2.

## Prime Divisors of 2

As 2 is divisible only by the number itself other than 1, so we deduce that 2 is a prime number. Hence, the prime divisor of 2 is only 2.

## Sum of Divisors of 2

The divisors of 2 are 1 and 2. So their sum will be

= 1+ 2

= 3

Thus the sum of the divisors of 2 is equal to 3.

## Product of Divisors of 2

As 1 and 2 are the divisors of 2; so the product of divisors of 2 will be

= 1× 2

= 2

Therefore, the product of the divisors of 2 is equal to 2.
