### Example: Find factors of 116 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 116 1 x 116 = 116
2 and 58 2 x 58 = 116
4 and 29 4 x 29 = 116

Since the product of two negative numbers gives a positive number, the product of the negative values of both the numbers in a pair factor will also give 116. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 116 would be ( -1 , -116 ) .

#### Introduction to factor pairs

Factor pair in mathematics is defined as all factors of a given number which when written in pair and multiplied gives the original number. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 116 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 29 , 58 , 116. So, factors of 116 in pair are (1,116), (2,58), (4,29).

#### How can we define factors?

In mathematics a factor is a number which divides into another without leaving any remainder. Or we can say, any two numbers that multiply to give a product are both factors of that product. It can be both positive or negative.

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 116 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 116.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 116 x 0 = 0.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 2, 4, 29, 58, 116 are exact divisors of 116.
• Factors of 116 are 1, 2, 4, 29, 58, 116. Each factor divides 116 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 29, 58, 116 are all less than or equal to 116.

#### Steps to find Factors of 116

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 116 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 58 (half of 116). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
116 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
116 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
116 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
116 ÷ 29 : Remainder = 0
116 ÷ 58 : Remainder = 0
116 ÷ 116 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 116 are 1, 2, 4, 29, 58, and 116

• Is 116 a composite number?

Yes 116 is a composite number.

• Is 116 a prime number?

No 116 is not a prime number.

• Is 116 a perfect square?

No 116 is not a perfect square.

• Write five multiples of 116.

Five multiples of 116 are 232, 348, 464, 580, 696.

• Write all odd factors of 116?

The factors of 116 are 1, 2, 4, 29, 58, 116.
Odd factors of 116 are 1 , 29.
