### Example: Find factors of 236 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 236 1 x 236 = 236
2 and 118 2 x 118 = 236
4 and 59 4 x 59 = 236

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 236. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 236 would be ( -1 , -236 ) .

#### 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 236 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 59 , 118 , 236. So, factors of 236 in pair are (1,236), (2,118), (4,59).

#### 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

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 236 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 236.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 236 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, 59, 118, 236 are exact divisors of 236.
• Factors of 236 are 1, 2, 4, 59, 118, 236. Each factor divides 236 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 59, 118, 236 are all less than or equal to 236.

#### Steps to find Factors of 236

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 236 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 118 (half of 236). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
236 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
236 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
236 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
236 ÷ 59 : Remainder = 0
236 ÷ 118 : Remainder = 0
236 ÷ 236 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 236 are 1, 2, 4, 59, 118, and 236

• Is 236 a composite number?

Yes 236 is a composite number.

• Is 236 a prime number?

No 236 is not a prime number.

• Is 236 a perfect square?

No 236 is not a perfect square.

• Write five multiples of 236.

Five multiples of 236 are 472, 708, 944, 1180, 1416.

• Write all odd factors of 236?

The factors of 236 are 1, 2, 4, 59, 118, 236.
Odd factors of 236 are 1 , 59.
