### Example: Find factors of 169 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 169 1 x 169 = 169
13 and 13 13 x 13 = 169

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 169. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 169 would be ( -1 , -169 ) .

#### 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 169 are 1 , 13 , 169. So, factors of 169 in pair are (1,169), (13,13).

#### 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 factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 13, 169 are exact divisors of 169.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 169 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 169.

#### Steps to find Factors of 169

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 169 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 84 (half of 169). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
169 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
169 ÷ 13 : Remainder = 0
169 ÷ 169 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 169 are 1, 13, and 169

• Is there any even prime factor of 169?

No there is no even prime factor, i.e. 2, of 169.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 169?

Factors of 169 are 1 , 13 , 169. Prime factors of 169 are 13 , 13. Therefore mean of prime factors of 169 is (13 + 13) / 2 = 13.00.

• What is the mean of factors of 169?

Factors of 169 are 1 , 13 , 169. therefore mean of factors of 169 is (1 + 13 + 169) / 3 = 61.00.

• 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.

• 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.

#### Examples of Factors
