### Example: Find factors of 156 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 156 1 x 156 = 156
2 and 78 2 x 78 = 156
3 and 52 3 x 52 = 156
4 and 39 4 x 39 = 156
6 and 26 6 x 26 = 156
12 and 13 12 x 13 = 156

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 156. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 156 would be ( -1 , -156 ) .

#### 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 156 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 12 , 13 , 26 , 39 , 52 , 78 , 156. So, factors of 156 in pair are (1,156), (2,78), (3,52), (4,39), (6,26), (12,13).

#### 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. 156 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 156.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 156 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, 3, 4, 6, 12, 13, 26, 39, 52, 78, 156 are exact divisors of 156.
• Factors of 156 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, 13, 26, 39, 52, 78, 156. Each factor divides 156 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, 13, 26, 39, 52, 78, 156 are all less than or equal to 156.

#### Steps to find Factors of 156

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 156 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 78 (half of 156). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
156 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 6 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 12 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 13 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 26 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 39 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 52 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 78 : Remainder = 0
156 ÷ 156 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 156 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, 13, 26, 39, 52, 78, and 156

• Is 156 a composite number?

Yes 156 is a composite number.

• Is 156 a prime number?

No 156 is not a prime number.

• What is the mean of factors of 156?

Factors of 156 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 12 , 13 , 26 , 39 , 52 , 78 , 156. therefore mean of factors of 156 is (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 12 + 13 + 26 + 39 + 52 + 78 + 156) / 12 = 32.67.

• What do you mean by proper divisors?

A number x is said to be the proper divisor of y if it divides y completely, given that x is smaller than y.

• What do you mean by improper divisors?

An improper divisor of a number is the number itself apart from this any divisor of a given number is a proper divisor.
