**What are the Factors of 441?**

Factors of 441 are all the numbers that multiply to give 441 as their product.

**What are the Factors of -441?**

When we multiply two numbers, and we get -441 as a product, those numbers are the factors of -441.

Here is the explanation:

-1 × 441 = -441

1 × -441 = -441

-3 × 147 = -441

3 × -147 = -441

-7 × 63 = -441

7 × -63 = -441

-9 × 49 = -441

9 × -49 = -441

-21 × 21 = -441

21 × -21 = -441

-49 × 9 = -441

49 × -9 = -441

-63 × 7 = -441

63 × -7 = -441

-147 × 3 = -441

147 × -3 = -441

-441 × 1 = -441

441 × -1 = -441

We can get -441 by having (-1, 441), (-3, 147), (-7, 63), (-9, 49), (-21, 21), (-49, 9), (-63, 7), (-147, 3), and (-441, 1) as a pair of factors. Similarly, we can also get -441 by having(1, -441), (3, -147), (7, -63), (9, -49), (21, -21), (49, -9), (63, -7), (147, -3), and (441, -1) as a pair of factors.

**Factors of 441 by Prime Factorization**

You can find the prime factorization factors of 35 by following these steps:

Step 1:Determine the pair of factors which, when multiplied, give 441

Factoring 441 can be done by multiplying 21 and 21.

Step 2:Because 21 isn’t a prime number, 3×7 is factorable.

Since 3 and 7 are both prime numbers, they cannot be factored further.

Step 3:Therefore, 441 can be written as 441 =

21 × 21 = 3 × 7 × 3 × 7

Thus, 441 = 32 × 72 is the prime factorization of 441.

**Factors of 441 in Pairs**

The pair factors of the number 441 are two whole numbers that multiply each other. There could be positive or negative pair factors, but not fractions or decimals.

**Positive factors of 441**:(1, 441), (3, 147), (7, 63), (9, 49), (21, 21), (49, 9), (63, 7), (147, 3), (441, 1)**Negative factors of 441**: (- 1, -441), (-3, -147 ), (-7, -63), (-9, -49), (-21, -21), (-49, -9), (-63, -7), (-147, -3), (-441, -1)

**Tips and Tricks:**

A number with a factor of 1 is the smallest. Therefore, it is a factor of 441.

Because all the digits in 441 add up to 9, 3 is a factor of 441 as well. Hence, 3 is one of its factors.

21 is a factor of 441 since it is divisible by 3 and 7.

**Solved Examples**

**1. Example 1:** Clarke’s school has 441 students. Suppose there are 21 classrooms in the entire school. Help him calculate how many students can sit in each classroom.

Solution:

Clarke’s school has 441 students. There are 21 classrooms in the entire school.

To calculate the number of students in each classroom Clarke has to divide 441 by 21, (441 ÷ 21 = 21 ). He found that 21 students could sit in each classroom.

**2. Example 2: **Williamson went to a cinema hall having 441 chairs. If there were 9 rows in the hall, help Williamson calculate how many seats are there in each row.**Solution:**There were 441 chairs in the cinema hall. Williamson saw there were 9 rows in the hall.

To calculate the number of seats in each row he will divide 441 by 9 as given below. (441 ÷ 9 = 49 ). There will be 49 seats in each row.
