## What are the Divisors of 3

A number is called a divisor of 3, if it completely divides the number 3 without leaving a remainder. In other words, we can say that

3 ÷ its divisor = an integer.

Thus 1 and 3 are the divisors of 3.

## How to Find Divisors of 3

We know that each divisor of 3 must be less than or equal to 3. So to find the divisors of 3, we will divide 3 by 1, 2, and 3, and see which are integers.

3 ÷ 1 = 3

3 ÷ 2 = not an integer

3 ÷ 3 =1.

So by the above definition, we can say that the divisors of 3 are 1 and 3.

Thus the number of divisors of 3 is 2.

## Prime Divisors of 3

As 3 is divisible only by 1 and the number itself, we can say that 3 is a prime number. So 3 is the only prime divisor of 3.

## Sum of Divisors of 3

The divisors of 3 are 1 and 3; so their sum

= 1+ 3

= 4

So the sum of the divisors of 3 is equal to 4.

## Product of Divisors of 3

We know 1 and 3 are the divisors of 3; so their product

= 1× 3

= 3

So the product of the divisors of 3 is equal to 3.
