### Example: Find factors of 250 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 250 1 x 250 = 250
2 and 125 2 x 125 = 250
5 and 50 5 x 50 = 250
10 and 25 10 x 25 = 250

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 250. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 250 would be ( -1 , -250 ) .

#### Definition of factor pairs?

In mathematics, factor pair are often given as pair of numbers which when multiplied together give the original number. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 250 are 1 , 2 , 5 , 10 , 25 , 50 , 125 , 250. So, factors of 250 in pair are (1,250), (2,125), (5,50), (10,25).

#### What are factors?

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

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 250 is a factor of itself.
• 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, 5, 10, 25, 50, 125, 250 are exact divisors of 250.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 250.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 250 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 250

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 250 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 125 (half of 250). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
250 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
250 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
250 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
250 ÷ 10 : Remainder = 0
250 ÷ 25 : Remainder = 0
250 ÷ 50 : Remainder = 0
250 ÷ 125 : Remainder = 0
250 ÷ 250 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 250 are 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 125, and 250

• Is 250 a composite number?

Yes 250 is a composite number.

• Is 250 a prime number?

No 250 is not a prime number.

• Write five multiples of 250.

Five multiples of 250 are 500, 750, 1000, 1250, 1500.

• Write all odd factors of 250?

The factors of 250 are 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 125, 250.
Odd factors of 250 are 1 , 5 , 25 , 125.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 250?

Factors of 250 are 1 , 2 , 5 , 10 , 25 , 50 , 125 , 250. Prime factors of 250 are 2 , 5 , 5 , 5. Therefore mean of prime factors of 250 is (2 + 5 + 5 + 5) / 4 = 4.25.
