Factors of 80

The two numbers which when gets multiplied and gives the result as 80, then these numbers are called the factors of 80.

These numbers can be positive or negative but shall not be in decimal form or fractions. Let’s take an example to understand this concept. The factor pairs for number 31 will be

(1, 31) (-1, -31)

When we multiply the factors (1, 31) we get the number 31.

In the same way, even when we multiply the two negative factors(-1, -31) then we get the number 31 only.

So, we can say that both positive and negative factors pairs of 31 are the factors of 31. We will use the same factorization method to find the factors and multiples of 80.

In this method we need to first consider the number itself and one as the factors, so 80 and 1 is the factors of 80 and then keep finding the factors of 80 which shall give us the number 80.

Prime Pair Factors of 80

To find the pair factors of 80, multiply the 2 no.s in a pair to have the original numbers as 80, such numbers are as follows:

(1, 80)

(2, 40)

(4, 20)

(5, 8)

(8, 10)

(10, 8)

(16, 5)

(20, 4)

(40, 2)

These above are the positive pair factors for 80.

Prime Factors of 80

These are the negative pair factors for 80.

(-1, -80)

(-2, -40)

(-4, -20)

(-5, -8)

(-8, -10)

(-10, -8)

(-16, -5)

(-20, -4)

(-40, -2)

Factor of 80 in pairs

(1, 80) are the factors of 80 as 1 x 80 is 80.

(2, 40) are the factors of 80 as 2 x 40 is 80

(4, 20) are the factors of 80 as 4 x 20 is 80

(5, 8) are the factors of 80 as 5 x 8 is 80

(8, 10) are the factors of 80 as 8 x 10 is 80

(10, 8) are the factors of 80 as 10 x 8 is 80

(16, 5) are the factors of 80 as 16 x 5 is 80

(20, 4) are the factors of 80 as 20 x 4 is 80

(40, 2) are the factors of 80 as 40 x 2 is 80

So the factors of 80 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 40
