### Example: Find factors of 185 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 185 1 x 185 = 185
5 and 37 5 x 37 = 185

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 185. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 185 would be ( -1 , -185 ) .

#### Definition of factor pairs?

In mathematics, factor pair are often given as pair of numbers which when multiplied together give the original number. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 185 are 1 , 5 , 37 , 185. So, factors of 185 in pair are (1,185), (5,37).

#### What are factors?

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

#### Properties of Factors

• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 5, 37, 185 are exact divisors of 185.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 185 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 185.

#### Steps to find Factors of 185

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 185 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 92 (half of 185). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
185 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
185 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
185 ÷ 37 : Remainder = 0
185 ÷ 185 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 185 are 1, 5, 37, and 185

• Is 185 a perfect square?

No 185 is not a perfect square.

• Write five multiples of 185.

Five multiples of 185 are 370, 555, 740, 925, 1110.

• Is there any even prime factor of 185?

No there is no even prime factor, i.e. 2, of 185.

• 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
