### Example: Find factors of 188 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 188 1 x 188 = 188
2 and 94 2 x 94 = 188
4 and 47 4 x 47 = 188

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 188. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 188 would be ( -1 , -188 ) .

#### 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 188 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 47 , 94 , 188. So, factors of 188 in pair are (1,188), (2,94), (4,47).

#### 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. 188 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 188.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 188 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, 47, 94, 188 are exact divisors of 188.
• Factors of 188 are 1, 2, 4, 47, 94, 188. Each factor divides 188 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 47, 94, 188 are all less than or equal to 188.

#### Steps to find Factors of 188

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 188 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 94 (half of 188). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
188 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
188 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
188 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
188 ÷ 47 : Remainder = 0
188 ÷ 94 : Remainder = 0
188 ÷ 188 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 188 are 1, 2, 4, 47, 94, and 188

• Is 188 a composite number?

Yes 188 is a composite number.

• Is 188 a prime number?

No 188 is not a prime number.

• Is 188 a perfect square?

No 188 is not a perfect square.

• Write five multiples of 188.

Five multiples of 188 are 376, 564, 752, 940, 1128.

• Write all odd factors of 188?

The factors of 188 are 1, 2, 4, 47, 94, 188.
Odd factors of 188 are 1 , 47.
