### Example: Find factors of 46 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 46 1 x 46 = 46
2 and 23 2 x 23 = 46

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 46. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 46 would be ( -1 , -46 ) .

#### 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 46 are 1 , 2 , 23 , 46. So, factors of 46 in pair are (1,46), (2,23).

#### 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

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 46 is a factor of itself.
• 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, 23, 46 are exact divisors of 46.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 46.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 46 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 46

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 46 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 23 (half of 46). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
46 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
46 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
46 ÷ 23 : Remainder = 0
46 ÷ 46 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 46 are 1, 2, 23, and 46

• Is 46 a composite number?

Yes 46 is a composite number.

• Is 46 a prime number?

No 46 is not a prime number.

• Write five multiples of 46.

Five multiples of 46 are 92, 138, 184, 230, 276.

• Write all odd factors of 46?

The factors of 46 are 1, 2, 23, 46.
Odd factors of 46 are 1 , 23.

• What is the mean of all prime factors of 46?

Factors of 46 are 1 , 2 , 23 , 46. Prime factors of 46 are 2 , 23. Therefore mean of prime factors of 46 is (2 + 23) / 2 = 12.50.
