### Example: Find factors of 164 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 164 1 x 164 = 164
2 and 82 2 x 82 = 164
4 and 41 4 x 41 = 164

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 164. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 164 would be ( -1 , -164 ) .

#### 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 164 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 41 , 82 , 164. So, factors of 164 in pair are (1,164), (2,82), (4,41).

#### 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

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 164 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 164.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 164 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, 41, 82, 164 are exact divisors of 164.
• Factors of 164 are 1, 2, 4, 41, 82, 164. Each factor divides 164 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 41, 82, 164 are all less than or equal to 164.

#### Steps to find Factors of 164

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 164 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 82 (half of 164). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
164 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
164 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
164 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
164 ÷ 41 : Remainder = 0
164 ÷ 82 : Remainder = 0
164 ÷ 164 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 164 are 1, 2, 4, 41, 82, and 164

• Is 164 a composite number?

Yes 164 is a composite number.

• Is 164 a prime number?

No 164 is not a prime number.

• Is 164 a perfect square?

No 164 is not a perfect square.

• Write five multiples of 164.

Five multiples of 164 are 328, 492, 656, 820, 984.

• Write all odd factors of 164?

The factors of 164 are 1, 2, 4, 41, 82, 164.
Odd factors of 164 are 1 , 41.
