### Example: Find factors of 248 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 248 1 x 248 = 248
2 and 124 2 x 124 = 248
4 and 62 4 x 62 = 248
8 and 31 8 x 31 = 248

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 248. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 248 would be ( -1 , -248 ) .

#### 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 248 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 8 , 31 , 62 , 124 , 248. So, factors of 248 in pair are (1,248), (2,124), (4,62), (8,31).

#### 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. 248 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 248.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 248 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, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248 are exact divisors of 248.
• Factors of 248 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248. Each factor divides 248 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248 are all less than or equal to 248.

#### Steps to find Factors of 248

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 248 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 124 (half of 248). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
248 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
248 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
248 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
248 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0
248 ÷ 31 : Remainder = 0
248 ÷ 62 : Remainder = 0
248 ÷ 124 : Remainder = 0
248 ÷ 248 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 248 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, and 248

• Is 248 a composite number?

• Write five multiples of 248.

Five multiples of 248 are 496, 744, 992, 1240, 1488.

• Write all odd factors of 248?

The factors of 248 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248.
Odd factors of 248 are 1 , 31.

#### Examples of Factors

Ariel has been asked to write all factor pairs of 248 but she is finding it difficult. Can you help her find out?

Factors of 248 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248. So, factors of 248 in pair are (1,248), (2,124), (4,62), (8,31).

Sammy wants to write all the negative factors of 248 in pair, but don't know how to start. Help Sammy in writing all the factor pairs.

Negative factors of 248 are -1, -2, -4, -8, -31, -62, -124, -248. Hence, factors of 248 in pair are (-1,-248), (-2,-124), (-4,-62), (-8,-31).

Help Deep in writing the positive factors of 248 in pair and negative factor of 248 in pair.

Factors of 248 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248. Positive factors of 248 in pair are (1,248), (2,124), (4,62), (8,31). Negative factors of 248 in pair are (-1,-248), (-2,-124), (-4,-62), (-8,-31).

Find the product of all factors of 248.

Factors of 248 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248. So the product of all factors of 248 would be 1 x 2 x 4 x 8 x 31 x 62 x 124 x 248 = 3782742016.

Find the product of all prime factors of 248.

Factors of 248 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 31, 62, 124, 248. Prime factors are 2, 2, 2, 31. So, the product of all prime factors of 248 would be 2 x 2 x 2 x 31 = 248.
