The factors of 101 are the numbers, which produce the result as 101 when two numbers are multiplied together. Factor pairs of the number 101 are the whole numbers which could be either positive or negative but not a fraction or decimal number. Consider an example, the factor pair of the number 29 is written as (1, 29) and (-1,-29). When we multiply the negative pair factors numbers, the result should give the original number, such as multiplying -1 × -29, then we get the number 29. Thus, we can consider both positive factor pairs and negative factor pairs of 29. To find the factors of a number, 101, we will use the factorization method.
In the factorization method, first consider the numbers, 1 and 101 as factors of 101 and continue with finding the other pair of multiples of 101 which gives the results as an original number. To understand this method in a better way, read the article below to find the factors of 101 in pairs. Also, the prime factor of 101 is discussed here
Pair Factors of 101
To find the pair factors of 101, multiply the two numbers in a pair to get the original number as 101, such numbers are as follows
If 1 × 101 = 101, then (1, 101) is a pair factor of 101.
Similarly, let us find other pair factors of 101.
101 × 1 = 101, then (101, 1) is a pair factor of 101.
Both the factor pairs (1, 101) and (101, 1) are the same.
Therefore, the positive pair factor of 101 is (1, 101)
To find the negative pair factors of 101, then proceed with the following steps
If -1 × -101 = 101, then (-1, -101) is a pair factor of 101.
-101 × -1 = 101, then (-101, -1) is a pair factor of 101.
Both the factor pairs (-1, -101) and (-101, -1) are the same.
Therefore, the negative pair factor of 101 is (-1, -101)
How to Find the Factors of 101?
Learn the following steps to find factors of 101.
- First, write the number 101
- Find the two numbers, which gives the result as 101 under the multiplication, say 1 and 101, such that 1 × 101 = 101.
- We know that 1 and 101 are the prime number which has only two factors, i.e., 1 and the number itself (101) and it cannot further factorize it.
The factors of 101 = 101 × 1
- Therefore, the factorization of 101 is written as 101 = 101 × 1

Prime Factors of 101
Since the number 101 is a prime number and it possesses only two factors. i.e., the number 1 and the number itself 101. So the prime factorisation of the number 101 is written as the number 101(itself). We can easily find the number of factors by adding 1 to the exponent value of the prime number 101. So it becomes 1+1 =2. Therefore, we can say the number 101 has two factors. The number 101 has no square factors and the simplified square root value of 101 is given as 10.04988 approximately.
