### Example: Find factors of 96 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 96 1 x 96 = 96
2 and 48 2 x 48 = 96
3 and 32 3 x 32 = 96
4 and 24 4 x 24 = 96
6 and 16 6 x 16 = 96
8 and 12 8 x 12 = 96

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 96. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 96 would be ( -1 , -96 ) .

#### 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 96 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 12 , 16 , 24 , 32 , 48 , 96. So, factors of 96 in pair are (1,96), (2,48), (3,32), (4,24), (6,16), (8,12).

#### 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. 96 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 96.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 96 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, 16, 24, 32, 48, 96 are exact divisors of 96.
• Factors of 96 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 96. Each factor divides 96 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, 16, 24, 32, 48, 96 are all less than or equal to 96.

#### Steps to find Factors of 96

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 96 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 48 (half of 96). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
96 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 6 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 12 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 16 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 24 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 32 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 48 : Remainder = 0
96 ÷ 96 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 96 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, and 96

• Is 96 a composite number?

Yes 96 is a composite number.

• Is 96 a prime number?

No 96 is not a prime number.

• What is the mean of factors of 96?

Factors of 96 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 12 , 16 , 24 , 32 , 48 , 96. therefore mean of factors of 96 is (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 12 + 16 + 24 + 32 + 48 + 96) / 12 = 21.00.

• 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.
