What Are Factor Pairs? To understand factor pairs, we have to go back to revising natural numbers. You see, every natural number is a product of at least a one-factor pair. For example, 19 has a single factor pair, which is 1 and 19, because 19 is present in the tables of 1 and 19 itself. The number 32 has many factor pairs, such as 1 and 32, 2 and 16, and 4 and 8. So, by definition, a factor pair are those two natural numbers that are multiplied to get a specific answer. Notice that 19 has a single factor pair. It is because 19 is a prime number, so it can be said that every prime number has a single factor pair. Let’s take another example by finding out the factor pair of 23. Can you think of any number of tables which answer 23? No? That’s right, 23 does not have another factor pair, because it is a prime number. A few other examples of factor pairs are given below. - 18 -> (1, 18), (2, 9), (3, 6). - 24 -> (1, 24), (4, 6), (8, 3) - 50 -> (1, 50), (2, 25), (5, 10)
