### Example: Find factors of 136 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 136 1 x 136 = 136
2 and 68 2 x 68 = 136
4 and 34 4 x 34 = 136
8 and 17 8 x 17 = 136

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 136. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 136 would be ( -1 , -136 ) .

#### 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 136 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 8 , 17 , 34 , 68 , 136. So, factors of 136 in pair are (1,136), (2,68), (4,34), (8,17).

#### 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. 136 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 136.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 136 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, 8, 17, 34, 68, 136 are exact divisors of 136.
• Factors of 136 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 17, 34, 68, 136. Each factor divides 136 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 8, 17, 34, 68, 136 are all less than or equal to 136.

#### Steps to find Factors of 136

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 136 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 68 (half of 136). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
136 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
136 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
136 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
136 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0
136 ÷ 17 : Remainder = 0
136 ÷ 34 : Remainder = 0
136 ÷ 68 : Remainder = 0
136 ÷ 136 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 136 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 17, 34, 68, and 136

• Is 136 a composite number?

Yes 136 is a composite number.

• Is 136 a prime number?

No 136 is not a prime number.

• Write five multiples of 136.

Five multiples of 136 are 272, 408, 544, 680, 816.

• Write all odd factors of 136?

The factors of 136 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 17, 34, 68, 136.
Odd factors of 136 are 1 , 17.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 136?

Factors of 136 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 8 , 17 , 34 , 68 , 136. Prime factors of 136 are 2 , 2 , 2 , 17. Therefore mean of prime factors of 136 is (2 + 2 + 2 + 17) / 4 = 5.75.
