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 312. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 312 would be ( -1 , -312 ) .

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 312 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 12 , 13 , 24 , 26 , 39 , 52 , 78 , 104 , 156 , 312. So, factors of 312 in pair are (1,312), (2,156), (3,104), (4,78), (6,52), (8,39), (12,26), (13,24).

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.

- Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 312 is a factor of itself.
- 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 312.
- Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 312 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, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 13, 24, 26, 39, 52, 78, 104, 156, 312 are exact divisors of 312.
- Factors of 312 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 13, 24, 26, 39, 52, 78, 104, 156, 312. Each factor divides 312 without leaving a remainder.
- Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 13, 24, 26, 39, 52, 78, 104, 156, 312 are all less than or equal to 312.

**Step 1.**Find all the numbers that would divide 312 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 156 (half of 312). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.312 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 6 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 12 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 13 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 24 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 26 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 39 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 52 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 78 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 104 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 156 : Remainder = 0312 ÷ 312 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of
*312* are **1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 13, 24, 26, 39, 52, 78, 104, 156, and 312**

**Is 312 a composite number?**Yes 312 is a composite number.

**What is the mean of factors of 312?**Factors of 312 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 12 , 13 , 24 , 26 , 39 , 52 , 78 , 104 , 156 , 312. therefore mean of factors of 312 is (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 12 + 13 + 24 + 26 + 39 + 52 + 78 + 104 + 156 + 312) / 16 = 52.50.

**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.
