### Example: Find factors of 279 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 279 1 x 279 = 279
3 and 93 3 x 93 = 279
9 and 31 9 x 31 = 279

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 279. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 279 would be ( -1 , -279 ) .

#### 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 279 are 1 , 3 , 9 , 31 , 93 , 279. So, factors of 279 in pair are (1,279), (3,93), (9,31).

#### 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

• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 279 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, 3, 9, 31, 93, 279 are exact divisors of 279.
• Factors of 279 are 1, 3, 9, 31, 93, 279. Each factor divides 279 without leaving a remainder.

#### Steps to find Factors of 279

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 279 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 139 (half of 279). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
279 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
279 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
279 ÷ 9 : Remainder = 0
279 ÷ 31 : Remainder = 0
279 ÷ 93 : Remainder = 0
279 ÷ 279 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 279 are 1, 3, 9, 31, 93, and 279

• Is 279 a composite number?

Yes 279 is a composite number.

• Is 279 a perfect square?

No 279 is not a perfect square.

• Write all odd factors of 279?

The factors of 279 are 1, 3, 9, 31, 93, 279.
Odd factors of 279 are 1 , 3 , 9 , 31 , 93 , 279.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 279?

Factors of 279 are 1 , 3 , 9 , 31 , 93 , 279. Prime factors of 279 are 3 , 3 , 31. Therefore mean of prime factors of 279 is (3 + 3 + 31) / 3 = 12.33.

• What do you mean by proper divisors?

A number x is said to be the proper divisor of y if it divides y completely, given that x is smaller than y.

#### Examples of Factors

How many total number of factors of 279 in pair are possible?
