 Factors of 192: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 96 and 192. Prime factorisation of 192: 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 or 26× 3

## Pair Factors of 192

If the product of two natural numbers is equal to 192, then such pairs of numbers are called pair factors of the original number.

• 1 × 192 = 192
• 2 × 96 = 192
• 3 × 64 = 192
• 4 × 48 = 192
• 6 × 32 = 192
• 8 × 24 = 192
• 12 × 16 = 192

Therefore, the positive pair factors of 192 are (1, 192), (2, 96), (3, 64), (4, 48), (6, 32), (8, 24), (12, 16).

Pair factors can be considered with a negative sign, since the product will result in a positive number.

• -1 × -192 = 192
• -2 × -96 = 192
• -3 × -64 = 192
• -4 × -48 = 192
• -6 × -32 = 192
• -8 × -24 = 192
• -12 × -16 = 192

Therefore, the negative pair factors are (-1, -192), (-2, -96), (-3, -64), (-4, -48), (-6, -32), (-8, -24), (-12, -16).

## How to Find the Factors of 192?

The factors of 192 can be determined by checking with what numbers, the actual number is completely divisible. It means that the remainder should remain zero.

• 192 ÷ 1 = 192
• 192 ÷ 2 = 96
• 192 ÷ 3 = 64
• 192 ÷ 4 = 48
• 192 ÷ 6 = 32
• 192 ÷ 8 = 24
• 192 ÷ 12 = 16
• 192 ÷ 16 = 12
• 192 ÷ 24 = 8
• 192 ÷ 32 = 6
• 192 ÷ 48 = 4
• 192 ÷ 64 = 3
• 192 ÷ 96 = 2
• 192 ÷ 192 = 1

Therefore, we can conclude the factors of 192, i.e., 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 96, 192. There are a total 14 factors, including 1 and the number itself.

## Prime Factorisation of 192

Prime factorisation of 192 is equal to the product of prime factors. This method will yield the prime factors of the actual number, by which it is divisible.

 Dividing 192 by smallest prime number, i.e.2 192 ÷ 2 = 96 96 is again divisible by 2 96 ÷ 2 = 48 48 is also divisible by 2 48 ÷ 2 = 24 24 is an even number and divisible by 2 24 ÷ 2 = 12 12 divided by 2 12 ÷ 2 = 6 6 divided by 2 6 ÷ 2 = 3 Now, 3 is itself a prime number. 3 ÷ 3 = 1

Therefore, the prime factors of 192 are 2 and 3.

Therefore, the Prime factorisation of 192 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 or 26 × 3.
