### Example: Find factors of 118 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 118 1 x 118 = 118
2 and 59 2 x 59 = 118

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 118. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 118 would be ( -1 , -118 ) .

#### What does factor pairs in mathematics mean?

In mathematics, factor pair of a number are all those possible combination which when multiplied together give the original number in return. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 118 are 1 , 2 , 59 , 118. So, factors of 118 in pair are (1,118), (2,59).

#### What is the definition of factors?

In mathematics, factors are number, algebraic expressions which when multiplied together produce desired product. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 118 is a factor of itself.
• 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, 59, 118 are exact divisors of 118.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 118.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 118 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 118

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 118 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 59 (half of 118). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
118 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
118 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
118 ÷ 59 : Remainder = 0
118 ÷ 118 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 118 are 1, 2, 59, and 118

• Is 118 a composite number?

• Is 118 a prime number?

No 118 is not a prime number.

• Write five multiples of 118.

Five multiples of 118 are 236, 354, 472, 590, 708.

• Write all odd factors of 118?

The factors of 118 are 1, 2, 59, 118.
Odd factors of 118 are 1 , 59.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 118?

Factors of 118 are 1 , 2 , 59 , 118. Prime factors of 118 are 2 , 59. Therefore mean of prime factors of 118 is (2 + 59) / 2 = 30.50.
