Factors of 59 Solved Examples

Example 1: Which number gives 59 and 95, when multiplied with 1?
Solution:
We need to get the missing factors in each case.
_____ × (1) = 59
_____ × (1) = 95Since one factor 1 is negative, the other factor also must be in negative.
Thus we get, 59 × (1) = 59
95 × (1) = 95 
Example 2: Sam finds 59 marbles in a pack. How many packs will he have to buy to give his 59 friends in class?
Solution:
Sam has to divide 59 cards amongst 59 students.
59 x ____ = 59. The missing factor is 1.Therefore, Sam will have to buy 1 pack only.
