### Example: Find factors of 191

• Divide 191 by 1: 191 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 191 by 191: 191 ÷ 191 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 191 are 1 and 191

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 191 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 191 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 191 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 191, which is 191. Divide 191 by 191 to obtain the quotient (1).
191 ÷ 191 = 1
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (1).

So, the prime factorization of 191 is, 191 = 191.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 191 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 191 is, 191 = 191.

#### 3. Find factors of 191 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 191 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 191 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 191 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 191 1 x 191 = 191

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 191. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 191 would be ( -1 , -191 ) , .

#### 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 number is a factor of zero (0), since 191 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, 191 are exact divisors of 191.
• Factors of 191 are 1, 191. Each factor divides 191 without leaving a remainder.

#### Examples of Factors

Joy wants to calculate mean of all the factors of 191. Help him in finding the mean of 191.

Factors of 191 are 1, 191.
To calculate the mean we need to calculate the sum of factors first. Sum of factors of 191 is 1 + 191 = 192.
Hence, the mean of factors of 191 is 192 ÷ 2 = 96.00.
