Factors Of 50 in Pairs

We can find the factors of number 50, by multiplying two numbers in a pair to get the original number as 50, such as;

1 × 50 = 50

2 × 25 = 50

5 × 10 = 50

Therefore,

1, 2, 5, 10, 25 and 50

Prime Factorisation of 50

The number 50 is a composite number. Now let us find the prime factors of 50.

  • The first step is to divide the number 50 with the smallest prime factor,i.e. 2.

50 ÷ 2 = 25

  • Again, dividing 25 by 2, we get a fraction number 12.5, which is not considered as a factor.
  • Now, proceed to the next prime numbers, i.e. 3, 5, 7 and so on

25 ÷ 3 = 8.33, 3 is not a factor of 50

  • Divide 25 by 5.

25 ÷ 5 = 5

          So, 5 is a factor of 50.

  • Now, again by dividing 5 by 5 we get,

5 ÷ 5 = 1

  • We have received 1 at the end and further, we cannot proceed with the division method. So, the prime factors of 50 are 2 × 5 × 5 or 2 × 52, where 2 and 5 are the prime numbers.
