What are the Factors of 82?
The integers that completely divide 82 leaving without any remainder are the factors of 82. They are 1, 2, 41 and 82.
How to Calculate the Factors of 82?
 82 is divisible by 1 and itself.
 Using the divisibility rules, perform the divisibility tests on all the integers starting from 2 upto 41(half of 82)
 We find that 82 ÷ 2 = 41 and 82 ÷ 41 = 2
 With no other integer 82 is divisible.
To understand the concept of finding factors by prime factorization better, let us take a few more examples.
 Factors of 83: The factors of 83 are 1 and 83.
 Factors of 81: The factors of 81 are 1, 3, 9, 27 and 81.
 Factors of 94: The factors of 94 are 1, 2, 47 and 94.
 Factors of 84:The factors of 84 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 12, 26, 28, 42, and 84.
 Factors of 72: The factors of 72 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, and 72
Factors of 82 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization is to express a composite number as the product of its prime factors.
 Divide 82 by the smallest prime number 2, being it even. 81 ÷ 2 = 41
 We cannot factorize 41 as it is a prime number itself.
 Using the division method, we determine the prime factors are 2 and 41.
Factors of 82 in Pairs
The numbers that give the product of 82 when multiplied together in pairs are the factors of 82 in pairs.
 1 × 82 = 82 and 1 × 82 = 82
 2 × 41 = 82 and 2 × 41 = 82
 41 × 2 = 82 and 41 × 2 = 82
 82 × 1= 82 and 82 × 1 = 82
Thus the factors of 82 in pairs are (1, 82), (1, 82), (2, 41)and (2, 41)
Tips and Tricks
 The prime factorization of 82 = 2 × 41
 The exponents of each of these factors = 1, i.e. 2^{1 }× 41^{1}
 Add 1 to each and multiply them. (1+1) × (1+1) = 2 × 2 = 4
 Thus we conclude that there are only 4 factors of 82.
Important Notes:
 The factors of 82 are 1, 2, 41 and 82
 The prime factors of 82 are 2 and 41.
 The distinct factors of 82 in pairs are (1, 82) and (2, 41)
Factors of 82 Solved Examples

Example 1: Sarah has invited 41 guests for her party and her mom has made 82 cookies for the party. How many cookies will each of the guest be served?
Solution:
41 guests × number of cookies = 82
41 × ____ = 82
Finding the missing factor, we get 41 × 2 = 82.
Thus each guest will be served 2 cookies. 
Example 2: What is the mean of all the factors of 82?
Solution:
Mean of the factors of 82 = sum of the factors ÷ total number of factors.
Mean = (1 + 2 + 41 + 82) ÷ 4
= 126 ÷ 4 = 31.5
