What Are Factors of 130?
Factors of a number are the numbers that divide the given number exactly without any remainder. According to the definition of factors, the factors of 130 are 1, 2, 5, 10, 13, 26, 65, and 130 So,130 is a composite number as it has factors other than 1 and itself.
How to Calculate Factors of 130?
We can use different methods like divisibility test, prime factorization, and the upsidedown division method to calculate the factors of 130. Let us use prime factorization method to find prime factors of 130. In prime factorization, we express 130 as a product of its prime factors, and in the division method, we see which numbers divide 130 exactly without a remainder.
Let us calculate factors of 130 using the following two methods:
 Factors of 130 by upsidedown division method
 Factors of 130 by division method
Prime Factorization by UpsideDown Division Method
 With the help of divisibility rules, find out the smallest factor of the given number.
 Here, 130 is an even number.
 Divide 130 by 2 = 130 ÷ 2 = 65. Therefore, 2 is the smallest prime factor of 130.
 Now find the prime factors of the obtained quotient. Here 65 is a quotient.
 Divide 65 by 5 = 65 ÷ 5 = 13. Therefore 5 is the next prime factor of 130.
 Repeat the process till we get a prime number as the quotient.
 The next obtained quotient is 13.
 Divide 13 by 13. Here we can stop the process. Hence, 13 is another prime factor of 130.
 Prime factorization of 130 is 2 × 5 × 13.
Factors of 130 by Division Method
Let us divide 130 by whole numbers and see which number divides 130 exactly without leaving a remainder.
 130 ÷ 1 = 130
 130 ÷ 2 = 65
 130 ÷ 5 = 26
 130 ÷ 10 = 13
 130 ÷ 13 = 10
 130 ÷ 26 = 5
 130 ÷ 65 = 2
 130 ÷ 130 = 1
According to division method, we have factors of 130 as 1, 2, 5, 10, 13, 26, 65, and 130. These are the numbers which exactly divide 130 without leaving any remainder.

Factors of 130 in Pairs
Numbers that give 130 when multiplied with each other are called the pair factors of 130.
 Therefore, the pair factors of 130 are (1, 130), (65, 2), (26, 5), (13, 10).
 Since the product of two negative numbers is positive, i.e., () × () = (+)
 Hence, (1, 130), (65, 2), (26, 5), (13, 10) are also factor pairs of 130.

Solved Examples

Example 1: $130 is distributed among 5 women for the work completed by them. Calculate the amount given to each woman.
Solution:
Total amount distributed = $130
Toatl number of women = 5
Amount given to each women = $130 ÷ 5 = $26 
Example 2: 130 people are invited to a wedding celebration. Due to COVID19 guidelines only 2 people can sit around a table. How many tables should the suppliers arrange for the invitees?
Solution:
Total number of invitees = 130
Number of people can accomodate seat around one table = 2
Total number of tables needed = 130 ÷ 2 = 65  Example 3: When a grade 3 teacher asked a question, some students raised their hands. But instead of raising one hand, each student raised both their hands. If there are 130 hands in total, how many students raised their hands?
Solution:
Total hands = 130
Maximum number of hands that can be raised = 2
Number of students = 130 ÷ 2 = 65
There are total 65 students.
