### Example: Find factors of 159 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 159 1 x 159 = 159
3 and 53 3 x 53 = 159

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 159. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 159 would be ( -1 , -159 ) .

#### What does factor pairs of a number mean?

Factor pairs are those factors in pair that can give original number when multiplied. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 159 are 1 , 3 , 53 , 159. So, factors of 159 in pair are (1,159), (3,53).

#### How can we define factors?

In mathematics, a factor is a number which divides into another number exactly, without leaving any remainder. A factor of a number can be positive of negative.

#### Properties of Factors

• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 159 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, 3, 53, 159 are exact divisors of 159.
• Factors of 159 are 1, 3, 53, 159. Each factor divides 159 without leaving a remainder.

#### Steps to find Factors of 159

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 159 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 79 (half of 159). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
159 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
159 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
159 ÷ 53 : Remainder = 0
159 ÷ 159 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 159 are 1, 3, 53, and 159

• Is 159 a composite number?

Yes 159 is a composite number.

• Is 159 a perfect square?

No 159 is not a perfect square.

• Write all odd factors of 159?

The factors of 159 are 1, 3, 53, 159.
Odd factors of 159 are 1 , 3 , 53 , 159.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 159?

Factors of 159 are 1 , 3 , 53 , 159. Prime factors of 159 are 3 , 53. Therefore mean of prime factors of 159 is (3 + 53) / 2 = 28.00.

• 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.

#### Examples of Factors

How many total number of factors of 159 in pair are possible?

Factors of 159 are 1, 3, 53, 159. Hence, the factors of 159 in pair are (1,159), (3,53). Therefore, in total 2 pairs of factors are possible.

Help Deep in writing the positive factors of 159 in pair and negative factor of 159 in pair.

Factors of 159 are 1, 3, 53, 159. Positive factors of 159 in pair are (1,159), (3,53). Negative factors of 159 in pair are (-1,-159), (-3,-53).

Find the product of all factors of 159.

Factors of 159 are 1, 3, 53, 159. So the product of all factors of 159 would be 1 x 3 x 53 x 159 = 25281.
