### Example: Find factors of 205

• Divide 205 by 1: 205 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 205 by 5: 205 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 205 by 41: 205 ÷ 41 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 205 by 205: 205 ÷ 205 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 205 are 1, 5, 41, and 205

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 205 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 205 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 205 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 205, which is 5. Divide 205 by 5 to obtain the quotient (41).
205 ÷ 5 = 41
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (41).
41 ÷ 41 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 205 is, 205 = 5 x 41.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 205 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 205 is, 205 = 5 x 41.

#### 3. Find factors of 205 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 205 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 205 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 205 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 205 1 x 205 = 205
5 and 41 5 x 41 = 205

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 205. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 205 would be ( -1 , -205 ) , ( -5 , -41 ) .

#### What are factors?

In mathematics, a factor is that number which divides into another number exactly, without leaving a remainder. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of factors
