Factors of 110: 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, 22, 55 and 110

Prime Factorization of 110: 110 = 2 × 5 × 11

## What are the Factors of 110?

The factors of 110 are the numbers multiplied in pairs to give the result of 110.  Those factors that divide 110 without leaving any remainder are the factors of 110. Therefore, when you multiply two whole numbers with each other and get 110 as the answer, you can say that both those numbers are factors of 110.

Take note of the following numbers. When you multiply the given numbers, you get 110.

1 × 110 = 110

2 × 55 = 110

5 × 22 = 110

10 × 11 = 110

11 × 10 = 110

22 × 5 = 110

55 × 2 = 110

110 × 1 = 110

Therefore, we can say that “The factors of 110 are all the integers that can be divided by 110.”

## What are the Factors of -110?

When we multiply two numbers, and we get -110 as a product, those numbers are the factors of -110.

Here is the explanation:

-1 × 110 = -110

1 × -110 = -110

-2 × 55 = -110

2 × -55 = -110

-5 × 22 = -110

5 × -22 = -110

-10× 11 = -110

10 ×-11 = -110

We can get -110 by having (-1, 110), (-2, 55), (-5, 22), and (-10, 11) as a pair of factors. Similarly, we can also get -110 by having (1, -110), (2, -55), (5, -22), and (10, -11) as a pair of factors.

## How to Calculate the Factors of 110?

Start by calculating the factors of 110, starting with the smallest whole number, i.e., 1.

Divide 110 by this number. Is there a remainder of 0?

Definitely! This is what we get

110/1 = 110

110 × 1 = 110

2 is the next whole number

Divide 110 by this number.

110/2 = 55

2 × 55 = 110

In a similar fashion, we get

110 = 1 × 110 = 2 × 55 = 5 × 22 = 10 ×11

The factors of 110 are as follows:

Therefore, the factors of 110 are 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, 22, 55, and 110.

## Factors of 110 by Prime Factorization

“Prime factorization” is the process of expressing a composite number as the product of its prime factors. We can determine the prime factorization of 110 by dividing it by its smallest prime factor, which is 2.

• 110/2 = 55

Using the smallest prime factor, 55 is divided by the quotient. This process continues until we get a quotient of 1.

Here is 110’s prime factorization:

Therefore, the prime factors of 110 are 2, 5, and 11.

## Factors of 110 in Pairs

Factor pairs of 110 are the pairs of numbers that give 110 when multiplied. Look at the following factors of 110 in pairs. According to the table above, no new factors are introduced after 10 × 11. Therefore, it is sufficient to find factors up until (10,11).

In the case of negative integers, both the numbers in the pair factors will be negative.  Due to the fact that (- ve * – ve) = +ve, we can list the factor pairs of 110 as (-1, -110); (-2, -55); (-5, 22); and (-10, 11).

## Important Notes:

Since 110 ends with the digit 0, it has the factors 5 and 10. All numbers ending with 0 have these factors as well

There are no perfect squares in 110. Thus, it will have an even number of factors. This property applies to every non-perfect square number.

## Solved examples

### 1. Example 1:

Ali bought two rectangular rugs which had different dimensions but had the same area of 110 inches². He wanted his friend Nadeem to guess the dimensions of the rugs. Could you help him with the two probable pairs other than (1,110) and (55, 2), that would result in the given area?
Solution:
Nadeem told that (5, 22) and (10,11) were the two-factor pairs of 110 which could be the dimensions of the two rugs. Let us see how he explained it.
Since  Area of a rectangle = length × breadth
For the first rug,
Area = 22 × 5 = 110 in²
For the second rug,
Area =10 × 11= 110 in²
Hence, the two-factor pairs are (22, 5) and (10, 11).

### Example 2:

Ali’s teacher told him that -55 is one of the factors of 110. Can you help him find the other factor?

Solution:
110 = Factor 1 × Factor 2
Therefore, 110 =(-55) × Factor 2
Factor 2 = 110/(-55) =(-2)
Thus, the other factor is -2
