### Example: Find factors of 178 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 178 1 x 178 = 178
2 and 89 2 x 89 = 178

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 178. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 178 would be ( -1 , -178 ) .

#### What does factor pairs in mathematics mean?

In mathematics, factor pair of a number are all those possible combination which when multiplied together give the original number in return. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 178 are 1 , 2 , 89 , 178. So, factors of 178 in pair are (1,178), (2,89).

#### What is the definition of factors?

In mathematics, factors are number, algebraic expressions which when multiplied together produce desired product. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 178 is a factor of itself.
• 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, 89, 178 are exact divisors of 178.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 178.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 178 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 178

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 178 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 89 (half of 178). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
178 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
178 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
178 ÷ 89 : Remainder = 0
178 ÷ 178 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 178 are 1, 2, 89, and 178

• Is 178 a composite number?

• Write five multiples of 178.

Five multiples of 178 are 356, 534, 712, 890, 1068.

• Write all odd factors of 178?

The factors of 178 are 1, 2, 89, 178.
Odd factors of 178 are 1 , 89.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 178?

Factors of 178 are 1 , 2 , 89 , 178. Prime factors of 178 are 2 , 89. Therefore mean of prime factors of 178 is (2 + 89) / 2 = 45.50.
