Factors of 25

Factors of 25 are basically the numbers that divide it evenly or exactly without leaving any remainder i.e if a number divides 25 with a remainder of zero, then that number is called a factor.

  • All Factors: 1, 5 and 25
  • Prime factors: 5
  • Factors in pairs: (1, 25), (5, 5)

Prime Factorization of 25

Prime factorization is a method of “expressing” or finding the given number as the product of prime numbers. If a number occurs more than once in prime factorization, it is usually expressed in exponential form to make it more compact.

Prime factorization of the required number: 5 × 5=52.

Prime factorization of 25 by Upside-Down Division Method

Upside-Down Division is one of the techniques used for Prime factorization to find factors of numbers.

In this method, you will divide a given “composite” number evenly by the several prime numbers(starting from the smallest) till it gets a prime number.

Upside down division method to find the factors of 25

It is called Upside-Down Division because the symbol is flipped upside down.

Here, 25 is an odd number. So it is odd and only divisible by 5 and itself with no remainder. Thus, 5 is the smallest prime factor here.

25÷ 5 = 5  Here, 5 is the prime number.

So we can stop the process.

Prime factorization of 25 with upside-down division method is: 5 × 5 = \(5^2 \).

Prime factorization of 25 by Factor Tree Method

The Factor tree method is another technique for producing the prime factorization of a given number.

To use this method for a number x,

Firstly consider two factors say a,b of x such that a*b is equal to x and at least one of them (a, b) is a prime factor say a.

Then consider two factors of b say c, d such that again at least one of them is a prime factor. This process is repeated until both the factors are prime i.e if we get both the factors as prime at any step, we stop the process there.

Following is the factor tree of the given number.

Here we can get the prime factorisation of 25 as 5* 5 and the prime factor is 5.

FAQs

What is the Sum of the Factors of 25?

The sum of all the factors is 1 + 5 + 25 = 31

How Many Factors of 25 are also Factors of 9?

The two given numbers have only 1 as the common factor and thus they are called as coprimes.

What Numbers Are the Prime Factors of 25?

The prime factor of 25 is 5.

*Co-primes: Two integers numbers, a and b, are said to be coprime numbers if their greatest common divisor is equal to one.
