### Example: Find factors of 786 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 786 1 x 786 = 786
2 and 393 2 x 393 = 786
3 and 262 3 x 262 = 786
6 and 131 6 x 131 = 786

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 786. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 786 would be ( -1 , -786 ) .

#### 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 786 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 6 , 131 , 262 , 393 , 786. So, factors of 786 in pair are (1,786), (2,393), (3,262), (6,131).

#### 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. 786 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, 131, 262, 393, 786 are exact divisors of 786.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 786.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 786 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 786

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 786 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 393 (half of 786). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
786 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
786 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
786 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
786 ÷ 6 : Remainder = 0
786 ÷ 131 : Remainder = 0
786 ÷ 262 : Remainder = 0
786 ÷ 393 : Remainder = 0
786 ÷ 786 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 786 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 131, 262, 393, and 786

• Is 786 a composite number?

Yes 786 is a composite number.

• Is 786 a prime number?

No 786 is not a prime number.

• What is the mean of factors of 786?

Factors of 786 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 6 , 131 , 262 , 393 , 786. therefore mean of factors of 786 is (1 + 2 + 3 + 6 + 131 + 262 + 393 + 786) / 8 = 198.00.

• 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.
