Factor pairs are two numbers that, when multiplied together, equal another number, or product. For instance, one and 12, two and 6, and three and four are the three factor pairs for the number 12.
The factor pairs of 60 are 1 x 60, 2 x 30, 3 x 20, 4 x 15, 5 x 12 and 6 x 10. The product of each of these number pairs is 60.
The factor pairs of 72 are 1 x 72, 2 x 36, 3 x 24, 4 x 18, 6 x 12 and 8 x 9. The product of each of these number pairs is 72.
A factor pair is a pair of integers whose product is a given number. The factors of a prime number are only 1 and itself. Composite numbers have the factor pair of 1 and itself, as well as at least one other factor pair.
Base pairing is the specific bonding of complementary nucleotide bases to one another in a nucleic acid. In base pairing, a purine bonds with a pyrimidine; specifically, guanine forms a bond with cytosine, and adenine bonds with either thymine or uracil, depending on th...
The prime factors of 6 are 2 and 3. The number 6 cannot be factorized into any other combination of prime numbers. A prime number is a whole number larger than 1 which can only be divided by 1 and itself.
A zero pair describes a pair of numbers whose sum equals zero. One number in this equation will always have a positive sign, while the other number will always have a negative sign.
