### Example: Find factors of 289 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 289 1 x 289 = 289
17 and 17 17 x 17 = 289

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 289. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 289 would be ( -1 , -289 ) .

#### 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 289 are 1 , 17 , 289. So, factors of 289 in pair are (1,289), (17,17).

#### 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 factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 17, 289 are exact divisors of 289.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 289 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 289.

#### Steps to find Factors of 289

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 289 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 144 (half of 289). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
289 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
289 ÷ 17 : Remainder = 0
289 ÷ 289 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 289 are 1, 17, and 289

• Is there any even prime factor of 289?

No there is no even prime factor, i.e. 2, of 289.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 289?

Factors of 289 are 1 , 17 , 289. Prime factors of 289 are 17 , 17. Therefore mean of prime factors of 289 is (17 + 17) / 2 = 17.00.

• What is the mean of factors of 289?

Factors of 289 are 1 , 17 , 289. therefore mean of factors of 289 is (1 + 17 + 289) / 3 = 102.33.

• 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.

• What do you mean by improper divisors?

An improper divisor of a number is the number itself apart from this any divisor of a given number is a proper divisor.

#### Examples of Factors
