### Example: Find factors of 272 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 272 1 x 272 = 272
2 and 136 2 x 136 = 272
4 and 68 4 x 68 = 272
8 and 34 8 x 34 = 272
16 and 17 16 x 17 = 272

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 272. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 272 would be ( -1 , -272 ) .

#### How do you define factor pairs of a number?

A factor pair of a number can be defined as the combination of two factors in such a way that when multiplied together produce the number itself. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 272 are 1 , 2 , 4 , 8 , 16 , 17 , 34 , 68 , 136 , 272. So, factors of 272 in pair are (1,272), (2,136), (4,68), (8,34), (16,17).

#### How do you explain factors?

In mathematics, a factor is a number or also it can be an algebraic expression that divides another number or any expression completely and that too without leaving any remainder. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 272 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 272.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 272 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, 16, 17, 34, 68, 136, 272 are exact divisors of 272.
• Factors of 272 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 17, 34, 68, 136, 272. Each factor divides 272 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 17, 34, 68, 136, 272 are all less than or equal to 272.

#### Steps to find Factors of 272

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 272 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 136 (half of 272). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
272 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 16 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 17 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 34 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 68 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 136 : Remainder = 0
272 ÷ 272 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 272 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 17, 34, 68, 136, and 272

• Is 272 a composite number?
