### Example: Find factors of 515

• Divide 515 by 1: 515 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 515 by 5: 515 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 515 by 103: 515 ÷ 103 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 515 by 515: 515 ÷ 515 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 515 are 1, 5, 103, and 515

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 515 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 515 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 515 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 515, which is 5. Divide 515 by 5 to obtain the quotient (103).
515 ÷ 5 = 103
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (103).
103 ÷ 103 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 515 is, 515 = 5 x 103.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 515 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 515 is, 515 = 5 x 103.

#### 3. Find factors of 515 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 515 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 515 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 515 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 515 1 x 515 = 515
5 and 103 5 x 103 = 515

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 515. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 515 would be ( -1 , -515 ) , ( -5 , -103 ) .

#### 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

• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 515 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, 5, 103, 515 are exact divisors of 515.
• Factors of 515 are 1, 5, 103, 515. Each factor divides 515 without leaving a remainder.

• How do you find factors of a negative number? ( eg. -515 )?

Factors of -515 are -1, -5, -103, -515.

• Is 515 a whole number?

Yes 515 is a whole number.

#### Examples of Factors

Joy wants to calculate mean of all the factors of 515. Help him in finding the mean of 515.

Factors of 515 are 1, 5, 103, 515.
To calculate the mean we need to calculate the sum of factors first. Sum of factors of 515 is 1 + 5 + 103 + 515 = 624.
Hence, the mean of factors of 515 is 624 ÷ 4 = 156.00.
