Factors Of 35

Factors of 35 are the numbers, which gives the original number 35 when multiplied together in pairs of two. When 35 is divided by any of its factors, then the resultant quotient is a whole number. Just like 35, there are many composite numbers such as 36, 24, 12, 18, 8, 25, 49, for which factors can be determined by the multiplication method.  Also, we will measure the prime factorisation of 35. To learn and find the factors of a number 35, read the complete article.

Factors of 35 in Pairs

We can find the factors of number 35 in pairs, by multiplying two numbers in a pair to get the original number as 35, such as:

1 × 35 = 35

5 × 7 = 35

Therefore, the factors in pairs of number 35 are (1, 35) and (5, 7).

Prime Factorisation of 35

The number 35 is a composite number. Now let us find the prime factors of 35.

  • The first step is to divide the number 35 with the smallest prime factor,i.e. 2.

35 ÷ 2 = 17.5

          But, factors cannot be decimal, therefore, 2 is not the prime factor for 35.

  • Now, proceed to the next prime numbers, i.e. 3, 5, 7 and so on

35 ÷ 3 = 11.67, 3 is not a prime factor of 35

  • Again divide 35 by 5.

35 ÷ 5 = 7

          So, 5 is a prime factor of 35.

  • Divide the output 7 by the next prime number, which is 7.

7 ÷ 7 = 1

  • We have received 1 at the end and further, we cannot proceed with the division method. the prime factorisation of 35 are 5 × 7, where 5 and 7 both are prime numbers.
