### Example: Find factors of 171 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 171 1 x 171 = 171
3 and 57 3 x 57 = 171
9 and 19 9 x 19 = 171

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 171. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 171 would be ( -1 , -171 ) .

#### 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 171 are 1 , 3 , 9 , 19 , 57 , 171. So, factors of 171 in pair are (1,171), (3,57), (9,19).

#### 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

• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 171 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, 9, 19, 57, 171 are exact divisors of 171.
• Factors of 171 are 1, 3, 9, 19, 57, 171. Each factor divides 171 without leaving a remainder.

#### Steps to find Factors of 171

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 171 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 85 (half of 171). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
171 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
171 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
171 ÷ 9 : Remainder = 0
171 ÷ 19 : Remainder = 0
171 ÷ 57 : Remainder = 0
171 ÷ 171 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 171 are 1, 3, 9, 19, 57, and 171

• Is 171 a composite number?

Yes 171 is a composite number.

• Is 171 a perfect square?

No 171 is not a perfect square.

• Write all odd factors of 171?

The factors of 171 are 1, 3, 9, 19, 57, 171.
Odd factors of 171 are 1 , 3 , 9 , 19 , 57 , 171.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 171?

Factors of 171 are 1 , 3 , 9 , 19 , 57 , 171. Prime factors of 171 are 3 , 3 , 19. Therefore mean of prime factors of 171 is (3 + 3 + 19) / 3 = 8.33.

• 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.
