### Example: Find factors of 301 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 301 1 x 301 = 301
7 and 43 7 x 43 = 301

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 301. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 301 would be ( -1 , -301 ) .

#### 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 301 are 1 , 7 , 43 , 301. So, factors of 301 in pair are (1,301), (7,43).

#### 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

• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 7, 43, 301 are exact divisors of 301.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 301 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 301.

#### Steps to find Factors of 301

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 301 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 150 (half of 301). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
301 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
301 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
301 ÷ 43 : Remainder = 0
301 ÷ 301 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 301 are 1, 7, 43, and 301

• Is there any even prime factor of 301?

No there is no even prime factor, i.e. 2, of 301.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 301?

Factors of 301 are 1 , 7 , 43 , 301. Prime factors of 301 are 7 , 43. Therefore mean of prime factors of 301 is (7 + 43) / 2 = 25.00.

• What is the mean of factors of 301?

Factors of 301 are 1 , 7 , 43 , 301. therefore mean of factors of 301 is (1 + 7 + 43 + 301) / 4 = 88.00.

• 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.

• 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.
