### Example: Find factors of 285 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 285 1 x 285 = 285
3 and 95 3 x 95 = 285
5 and 57 5 x 57 = 285
15 and 19 15 x 19 = 285

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 285. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 285 would be ( -1 , -285 ) .

#### 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 285 are 1 , 3 , 5 , 15 , 19 , 57 , 95 , 285. So, factors of 285 in pair are (1,285), (3,95), (5,57), (15,19).

#### 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

• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 3, 5, 15, 19, 57, 95, 285 are exact divisors of 285.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 285 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 285.

#### Steps to find Factors of 285

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 285 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 142 (half of 285). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
285 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
285 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
285 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
285 ÷ 15 : Remainder = 0
285 ÷ 19 : Remainder = 0
285 ÷ 57 : Remainder = 0
285 ÷ 95 : Remainder = 0
285 ÷ 285 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 285 are 1, 3, 5, 15, 19, 57, 95, and 285

• Is 285 a composite number?

Yes 285 is a composite number.

• Is 285 a perfect square?

No 285 is not a perfect square.

• Write all odd factors of 285?

The factors of 285 are 1, 3, 5, 15, 19, 57, 95, 285.
Odd factors of 285 are 1 , 3 , 5 , 15 , 19 , 57 , 95 , 285.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 285?

Factors of 285 are 1 , 3 , 5 , 15 , 19 , 57 , 95 , 285. Prime factors of 285 are 3 , 5 , 19. Therefore mean of prime factors of 285 is (3 + 5 + 19) / 3 = 9.00.

• 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.
