### Example: Find factors of 605

• Divide 605 by 1: 605 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 605 by 5: 605 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 605 by 11: 605 ÷ 11 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 605 by 55: 605 ÷ 55 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 605 by 121: 605 ÷ 121 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 605 by 605: 605 ÷ 605 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 605 are 1, 5, 11, 55, 121, and 605

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 605 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 605 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 605 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 605, which is 5. Divide 605 by 5 to obtain the quotient (121).
605 ÷ 5 = 121
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (121).
121 ÷ 11 = 11
11 ÷ 11 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 605 is, 605 = 5 x 11 x 11.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 605 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 605 is, 605 = 5 x 11 x 11.

#### 3. Find factors of 605 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 605 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 605 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 605 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 605 1 x 605 = 605
5 and 121 5 x 121 = 605
11 and 55 11 x 55 = 605

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 605. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 605 would be ( -1 , -605 ) , ( -5 , -121 ) and ( -11 , -55 ) .

#### 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

#### Examples of Factors

Joy wants to calculate mean of all the factors of 605. Help him in finding the mean of 605.

Factors of 605 are 1, 5, 11, 55, 121, 605.
To calculate the mean we need to calculate the sum of factors first. Sum of factors of 605 is 1 + 5 + 11 + 55 + 121 + 605 = 798.
Hence, the mean of factors of 605 is 798 ÷ 6 = 133.00.
