## Related Questions Factors can be listed singly or in pairs. The factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3, 6 The factor pairs of 6 are (6,1)(3,2) Factor pairs are just the factors of a number listed in a different way. The factors of 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20 The factor pairs of 20 are (20,1)(10,2)(5,4) How they're listed. The factors of 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20 The factor pairs of 20 are (20,1)(10,2)(5,4) The factor pairs are all the factors of the number, just listed in pairs. (6375,1)(2125,3)(1275,5)(425,15)(375,17)(255,25)(125,51)(85,75) Prime numbers have one factor pair. Composite numbers have two or more pairs. (6,8) and (4,12) are two different factor pairs for 48. The difference is between factor pairs and distinct factors. With square numbers, one of the factor pairs will be the same number twice. When listing the distinct factors, that number is only listed once. Factors are 1, 3, 9, 27. Factor pairs are 1&amp;27, 3&amp;9 Just the way they're listed. The factors of 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20 The factor pairs of 20 are (20,1)(10,2)(5,4)  The factors of 8 are: 1,2,4,and 8. The factor pairs of 8 are: 1x8 2x4 These are the only two factor pairs Factors of 21 are 1, 3, 7, and 21; the factor pairs are (1 x 21) and (3 x 7). All numbers have factors. It is possible to list them as pairs. The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12. The factor pairs of 12 are (12,1)(6,2)(4,3) I suggest you split up this number into prime factors. Then you can easily pick out different factors, combining different prime factors. To get FACTOR PAIRS, pick out one factor, then divide 1040 by that factor to get the other factor. For instance, 10 (2 x 5) is one factor; if you divide 1040 by 10, you get 104 as the other factor (so the factor would be 10 x 104). Separate the number into prime factors. Then it should be easy to get ALL the factors, simply by combining different prime factors. The factor pairs of 32 are (32,1)(16,2)(8,4) For them to be common, they would have to be compared to another set of factor pairs. name factors pairs between 3000 and 5000 The factor pairs of 21 are:1, 213, 7Therefore, the number 21 has two pairs of positive integer factors.    Numbers have factors. These can be grouped in pairs. Since 2 x 3 = 6, (2,3) is a factor pair of 6. Factor pairs of 15 are: 1x15=15 and 3x5=15. 1, 3, 5, and 15 are the factors of 15. The factors pairs of 82 are (1 x 82) and (2 x 41). ###### Math and ArithmeticFactoring and MultiplesAlgebra Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC. All Rights Reserved.
