### Example: Find factors of 461 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 461 1 x 461 = 461

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 461. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 461 would be ( -1 , -461 ) , .

#### 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 461 are 1 , 461. So, factors of 461 in pair are (1,461).

#### 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, 461 are exact divisors of 461.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 461 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 461.

#### Steps to find Factors of 461

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 461 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 230 (half of 461). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
461 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
461 ÷ 461 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 461 are 1 and 461

• Is 461 a perfect square?

No 461 is not a perfect square.

• Write five multiples of 461.

Five multiples of 461 are 922, 1383, 1844, 2305, 2766.

• Is there any even prime factor of 461?

No there is no even prime factor, i.e. 2, of 461.

• 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.
