• Divide 776 by 2: 776 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 776 by 4: 776 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 776 by 8: 776 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 776 by 97: 776 ÷ 97 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 776 by 194: 776 ÷ 194 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 776 by 388: 776 ÷ 388 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 776 by 776: 776 ÷ 776 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 776 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 97, 194, 388, and 776

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 776 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 776 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 776 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 776, which is 2. Divide 776 by 2 to obtain the quotient (388).
776 ÷ 2 = 388
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (388).
388 ÷ 2 = 194
194 ÷ 2 = 97
97 ÷ 97 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 776 is, 776 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 97.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 776 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 776 is, 776 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 97.

#### 3. Find factors of 776 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 776 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 776 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 776 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 776 1 x 776 = 776
2 and 388 2 x 388 = 776
4 and 194 4 x 194 = 776
8 and 97 8 x 97 = 776

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 776. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 776 would be ( -1 , -776 ) , ( -2 , -388 ) , ( -4 , -194 ) and ( -8 , -97 ) .

#### 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

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 776 is a factor of itself.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 776.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 776 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, 2, 4, 8, 97, 194, 388, 776 are exact divisors of 776.
• Factors of 776 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 97, 194, 388, 776. Each factor divides 776 without leaving a remainder.
• Every factor of a number is less than or equal to the number, eg. 1, 2, 4, 8, 97, 194, 388, 776 are all less than or equal to 776.

#### Examples of Factors

Joy wants to calculate mean of all the factors of 776. Help him in finding the mean of 776.

Factors of 776 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 97, 194, 388, 776.
To calculate the mean we need to calculate the sum of factors first. Sum of factors of 776 is 1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 97 + 194 + 388 + 776 = 1470.
Hence, the mean of factors of 776 is 1470 ÷ 8 = 183.75.
