#### 2. Steps to find factors of 12100 using Prime Factorization

A prime number is a number that has exactly two factors, 1 and the number itself. Prime factorization of a number means breaking down of the number into the form of products of its prime factors.

There are two different methods that can be used for the prime factorization.

#### Method 1: Division Method

To find the primefactors of 12100 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 12100 by the smallest prime number, i.e., 2, 3, 5, and so on. Find the smallest prime factor of the number.
• Step 2. After finding the smallest prime factor of the number 12100, which is 2. Divide 12100 by 2 to obtain the quotient (6050).
12100 ÷ 2 = 6050
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (6050).
6050 ÷ 2 = 3025
3025 ÷ 5 = 605
605 ÷ 5 = 121
121 ÷ 11 = 11
11 ÷ 11 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 12100 is, 12100 = 2 x 2 x 5 x 5 x 11 x 11.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 12100 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 12100 is, 12100 = 2 x 2 x 5 x 5 x 11 x 11.

#### 3. Find factors of 12100 in Pairs

Pair factors of a number are any two numbers which, which on multiplying together, give that number as a result. The pair factors of 12100 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 12100 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 12100 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 12100 1 x 12100 = 12100
2 and 6050 2 x 6050 = 12100
4 and 3025 4 x 3025 = 12100
5 and 2420 5 x 2420 = 12100
10 and 1210 10 x 1210 = 12100
11 and 1100 11 x 1100 = 12100
20 and 605 20 x 605 = 12100
22 and 550 22 x 550 = 12100
25 and 484 25 x 484 = 12100
44 and 275 44 x 275 = 12100
50 and 242 50 x 242 = 12100
55 and 220 55 x 220 = 12100
100 and 121 100 x 121 = 12100
110 and 110 110 x 110 = 12100

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 12100. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 12100 would be ( -1 , -12100 ) , ( -2 , -6050 ) , ( -4 , -3025 ) , ( -5 , -2420 ) , ( -10 , -1210 ) , ( -11 , -1100 ) , ( -20 , -605 ) , ( -22 , -550 ) , ( -25 , -484 ) , ( -44 , -275 ) , ( -50 , -242 ) , ( -55 , -220 ) , ( -100 , -121 ) and ( -110 , -110 ) .
