### Example: Find factors of 726 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 726 1 x 726 = 726
2 and 363 2 x 363 = 726
3 and 242 3 x 242 = 726
6 and 121 6 x 121 = 726
11 and 66 11 x 66 = 726
22 and 33 22 x 33 = 726

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 726. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 726 would be ( -1 , -726 ) .

#### 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 726 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 6 , 11 , 22 , 33 , 66 , 121 , 242 , 363 , 726. So, factors of 726 in pair are (1,726), (2,363), (3,242), (6,121), (11,66), (22,33).

#### 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. 726 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, 3, 6, 11, 22, 33, 66, 121, 242, 363, 726 are exact divisors of 726.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 726.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 726 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 726

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 726 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 363 (half of 726). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
726 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 6 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 11 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 22 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 33 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 66 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 121 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 242 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 363 : Remainder = 0
726 ÷ 726 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 726 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 22, 33, 66, 121, 242, 363, and 726

• Is 726 a composite number?

Yes 726 is a composite number.

• Is 726 a prime number?

No 726 is not a prime number.

• What is the mean of factors of 726?

Factors of 726 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 6 , 11 , 22 , 33 , 66 , 121 , 242 , 363 , 726. therefore mean of factors of 726 is (1 + 2 + 3 + 6 + 11 + 22 + 33 + 66 + 121 + 242 + 363 + 726) / 12 = 133.00.

• 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.
