What Are The Factors of 140?
 The pairs of numbers that when multiplied together make 140 are the factors of 140.
 1 × 140, 2 × 70 , 4 × 35 , 5 × 28 , 7 × 20, 10 × 14 are the pairs that make 140 and they are all the factors of 140.
 We can use different methods to calculate the factors of 140.
 In prime factorization, we express 140 as a product of its prime factors and in the division method, we see what numbers divide 140 exactly without a remainder.
How To Calculate Factors of 140?
 Let's begin calculating the factors of 140, with our idea that any number that completely divides 140 without any remainder is its factor.
 Let's start with the whole number 1. 140 ÷ 1 = 140
 The next whole number is 2. Now, divide 30 by 2. 140 ÷ 2 = 70
 Proceeding in this manner we obtain all the factors of 30.
 140 ÷ 4 = 35
 140 ÷ 5 = 28
 140 ÷ 10 = 14
Hence, the factors of 140 are, 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 10, 14, 20, 28, 35, 70 and 140.

Factors of 140 by Prime Factorization
"Prime factorization is to express a composite number as the product of its prime factors."
 To get the prime factors of 30, we divide it by its smallest prime factor, which is 2. 140 ÷ 2 = 70
 Now, 70 is divided by its smallest prime factor and the quotient is obtained. 70 ÷ 2 = 35
 35 ÷ 5 = 7. 7 ÷ 7 =1. This process goes on until we get the quotient as 1.
The prime factorization of 140 is shown below:
Factors of 140 in Pairs
Factor pairs of 140 are the two numbers which, when multiplied, give the number 140. Therefore, the distinct pair factors of 140 are (1,140), (2, 70), (4, 35), and (5, 28).
Important Notes
 The numbers which we multiply in pairs to get 140 are the factors of 140.
 Factors of 140 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 10, 14, 20, 28, 35, 70 and 140.
 The number itself is a factor of the number as it divides itself exactly. Factor pairs are the pairs of two numbers which, when multiplied, give the number. Factor pairs of 140 are (1,140) (2,70) (4,35) (5,28) (7, 20), and (10,14)
Factors of 140 Solved Examples
