### Example: Find factors of 266 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 266 1 x 266 = 266
2 and 133 2 x 133 = 266
7 and 38 7 x 38 = 266
14 and 19 14 x 19 = 266

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 266. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 266 would be ( -1 , -266 ) .

#### 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 266 are 1 , 2 , 7 , 14 , 19 , 38 , 133 , 266. So, factors of 266 in pair are (1,266), (2,133), (7,38), (14,19).

#### 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. 266 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, 7, 14, 19, 38, 133, 266 are exact divisors of 266.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 266.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 266 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 266

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 266 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 133 (half of 266). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
266 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
266 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
266 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
266 ÷ 14 : Remainder = 0
266 ÷ 19 : Remainder = 0
266 ÷ 38 : Remainder = 0
266 ÷ 133 : Remainder = 0
266 ÷ 266 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 266 are 1, 2, 7, 14, 19, 38, 133, and 266

• Is 266 a composite number?

• Write five multiples of 266.

Five multiples of 266 are 532, 798, 1064, 1330, 1596.

• Write all odd factors of 266?

The factors of 266 are 1, 2, 7, 14, 19, 38, 133, 266.
Odd factors of 266 are 1 , 7 , 19 , 133.
