## Factors of 102

A factor of 102 is a natural number that uniformly divides the original number. As a result, 102 is divided into two equal parts. These factors are also known as divisors of 102.

Therefore, 102 has more than two factors since it is an even composite number.

The number 102 is the first even three-digit number.

If you want to find the factors of 102, we will tell you how to find all the factor of 101.

If you multiply two numbers and the result is 102, they are the factors of 102. Hence, you can represent 102 as a pair factor or as a prime factor.

## How to Find the Factors of 102?

The factors of 102 can be determined by dividing 102 by the numbers that can evenly divide 102.

102 ÷ 1      = 102

102 ÷ 2      = 51

102 ÷ 3      = 34

102 ÷ 6      = 17

102 ÷ 17    = 6

102 ÷ 34    = 3

102 ÷ 51    = 2

102 ÷ 102  = 1

Therefore, 102 has eight following factors:

1, 2, 3, 6, 17, 34, 51 and 102.

## What are the Factors of -102?

We can get -102 by having (-1, 102), (-2, 102), (-3, 102), (-6, 102), (-17, 102), (-34, 102), (-51, 102), (-102, 102) as a pair of factors. Similarly, we can also get -102 by having (1, -102), (2, -102), (3, -102), and (6, -102), (17, -102), (34, -102), (51, -102), (102, -102) as a pair of factors.

## Pair Factors of 102

Multiplying two factors together results in the original number. As a result, pair factors of 102 would be:

1 × 102   = 102

2 × 51     = 102

3 × 34     = 102

6 × 17     = 102

As a result, the pair factors of 102 are (1, 102), (2, 51), (3, 34), and (6, 17).

Hence, it is possible to write the negative pair factors as the product of two negative numbers, resulting in 102.

-1 × -102  = 102

-2 × -51    = 102

-3 × -34    = 102

-6 × -17    = 102

Hence, the negative pair factors are (-1, -102), (-2, -51), (-3, 34) and (-6, 17).

## Prime Factorization of 102

By using prime factorization, it is possible to find the prime factors of 102. To find the quotient of 102, divide it by the prime numbers unless the quotient is equal to 1.

Thus, the prime factors are the following:

2, 3, and 17.

## Solved Examples

### Q.1: How do you multiply 17 by 102?

Solution: Let n be the number you can multiply that number by 32 to get 102.

So,

n × 17 = 102

n = 102/17

n = 6

Therefore, 6 should be multiplied by 17 to get 102 as the result.

### Q.2: Find the sum of factors of 102 and 103.

Solution: 1, 2, 3, 6, 17, 34, 51, and 102 are the factors of the number 102.

Sum of all the factors = 1 + 2 + 3 + 6 + 17 + 34 + 51 + 102

Sum = 216

Factors of 103 = 1 and 103.

Sum= 104

### Q.2: What is the greatest common factor between 41 and 102?

Solution:

Factors of 41 = 1 and 41.

The factors of 102 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 17, 34, 51, 102

Therefore, 41 and 102 have the following greatest common factor:

GCF (41, 102) = 1
