### Example: Find factors of 895

• Divide 895 by 1: 895 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 895 by 5: 895 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 895 by 179: 895 ÷ 179 : Remainder = 0
• Divide 895 by 895: 895 ÷ 895 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 895 are 1, 5, 179, and 895

#### 2. Steps to find factors of 895 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 895 using the division method, follow these steps:

• Step 1. Start dividing 895 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 895, which is 5. Divide 895 by 5 to obtain the quotient (179).
895 ÷ 5 = 179
• Step 3. Repeat step 1 with the obtained quotient (179).
179 ÷ 179 = 1

So, the prime factorization of 895 is, 895 = 5 x 179.

#### Method 2: Factor Tree Method

We can follow the same procedure using the factor tree of 895 as shown below:

So, the prime factorization of 895 is, 895 = 5 x 179.

#### 3. Find factors of 895 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 895 would be the two numbers which, when multiplied, give 895 as the result.

The following table represents the calculation of factors of 895 in pairs:

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 895 1 x 895 = 895
5 and 179 5 x 179 = 895

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 895. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 895 would be ( -1 , -895 ) , ( -5 , -179 ) .

#### 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 895 x 0 = 0.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
