Factors of 77 Solved Examples

Example 1: Which number on multiplying with (7) gives 77?
Solution:
To find this, we need to divide 77 by (7) = 77/(7) = 11
Hence, 11 on multiplying with 7 gives 77 
Example 2: Help Andy list the factors of 77 and its pair factors.
Solution:
Factors of 77 are the numbers that divide 77 exactly without any remainder. They are: 1, 7, 11, and 77.
Pair factors are the pairs of two numbers which, when multiplied, give 77. We know that:
1 × 77 = 77
7 × 11 = 77
11 × 7 = 77
77 × 1 = 77
Hence, pair factors of 77 are (1, 77), (7, 11), (11, 7), and (77, 1).
