I think the answer is just I because it is the only number that can go into it. Is that correct?

**bobpursley**, Saturday, October 31, 2009 at 2:06pmare you looking for factors of x^793?

or i^793, where i is the sqrt(-1)?

factors of x^793 are very numerous. x^793 is not a prime number.

i^793=i^792 * 1

Now consider

i^2=-1

i^4=1

i^6=-1

so the conclusion is that i^(4n-2) is -1

otherwise, i to even is 1

WEll, is 792=4n-2

4n=794, or n is not an integer, so

i^792=1

finally, i^792*i= i and it has only one factor, i.
