### Example: Find factors of 24 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 24 1 x 24 = 24
2 and 12 2 x 12 = 24
3 and 8 3 x 8 = 24
4 and 6 4 x 6 = 24

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 24. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 24 would be ( -1 , -24 ) .

#### What does factor pairs of a number mean?

Factor pairs are those factors in pair that can give original number when multiplied. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 24 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 12 , 24. So, factors of 24 in pair are (1,24), (2,12), (3,8), (4,6).

#### How can we define factors?

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

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 24 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 24.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 24 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, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 are exact divisors of 24.
• Factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24. Each factor divides 24 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 are all less than or equal to 24.

#### Steps to find Factors of 24

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 24 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 12 (half of 24). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
24 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
24 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
24 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
24 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
24 ÷ 6 : Remainder = 0
24 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0
24 ÷ 12 : Remainder = 0
24 ÷ 24 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24

• Is 24 a composite number?

Yes 24 is a composite number.

• Is 24 a prime number?

No 24 is not a prime number.

• What is the mean of factors of 24?

Factors of 24 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 12 , 24. therefore mean of factors of 24 is (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 12 + 24) / 8 = 7.50.

• 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

Ariel has been asked to write all factor pairs of 24 but she is finding it difficult. Can you help her find out?

Factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24. So, factors of 24 in pair are (1,24), (2,12), (3,8), (4,6).

Sammy wants to write all the negative factors of 24 in pair, but don't know how to start. Help Sammy in writing all the factor pairs.

Negative factors of 24 are -1, -2, -3, -4, -6, -8, -12, -24. Hence, factors of 24 in pair are (-1,-24), (-2,-12), (-3,-8), (-4,-6).

Help Deep in writing the positive factors of 24 in pair and negative factor of 24 in pair.

Factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24. Positive factors of 24 in pair are (1,24), (2,12), (3,8), (4,6). Negative factors of 24 in pair are (-1,-24), (-2,-12), (-3,-8), (-4,-6).

Find the product of all factors of 24.

Factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24. So the product of all factors of 24 would be 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 6 x 8 x 12 x 24 = 331776.

Find the product of all prime factors of 24.

Factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24. Prime factors are 2, 2, 2, 3. So, the product of all prime factors of 24 would be 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 = 24.
