### Example: Find factors of 244 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 244 1 x 244 = 244
2 and 122 2 x 122 = 244
4 and 61 4 x 61 = 244

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 244. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 244 would be ( -1 , -244 ) .

#### 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 244 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 61 , 122 , 244. So, factors of 244 in pair are (1,244), (2,122), (4,61).

#### 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. 244 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 244.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 244 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, 61, 122, 244 are exact divisors of 244.
• Factors of 244 are 1, 2, 4, 61, 122, 244. Each factor divides 244 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 61, 122, 244 are all less than or equal to 244.

#### Steps to find Factors of 244

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 244 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 122 (half of 244). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
244 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
244 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
244 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
244 ÷ 61 : Remainder = 0
244 ÷ 122 : Remainder = 0
244 ÷ 244 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 244 are 1, 2, 4, 61, 122, and 244
