49 is a composite number and all its factors are integers that can be divided evenly into 49.

But tell me “What is a factor?” A factor is a number that divides another number without leaving a remainder. For example, 5 is a factor of 30 as it divides 30 exactly at 6 with no remainder. Now, the most important is “ What are the factors of 49?” so, we will answer this question straightforwardly and simply. The Common factors of 49 are 1, 7, and 49. Now, another important question that arises is “How do we know that these are the correct factors of 49?” the answer to this question is given under the next heading.

There are two basic methods to know which number can be the correct factor. These two methods to recognize a factor are:

We can use the test of divisibility to find a factor of a number.

Simply divide and see if the factor divides the number without leaving any remainder. We know the factors of 49 are 1, 7, and 49. Let us check if we are correct.

49 ÷ 1 = 49 (no remainder)

49 ÷ 7 = 7 (no remainder)

49 ÷ 49 = 1 (no remainder)

Therefore, 1, 7, and 49 are all factors of 49.

If we see the performed divisions above, then we can conclude that there are only 3 factors of 49. 1, 7 and 49 are the common factors of 49. These factors divide 49 evenly and without leaving any remainders.

Pair factors are combinations of any two factors which when multiplied together gives 49 as the product. Here we can see all the Positive pair factors of 49.

1 x 49 = 49 therefore, we can say 1 and 49 are pair factors.

7 x 7 = 49 therefore, we can say 7 and 7 are pair factors.

49 x 1 = 49 therefore, we can say 49 and 1 are pair factors.

We already know what a prime factorization is but let us refresh it. A prime factorization is a method where a set of prime numbers are multiplied together to produce the original number. Now, let us directly jump into the prime factorization of 49. 7 x 7 = 49 is the prime factorization of 49. We can also write it as 72and thus it is also a square number.

A factor tree is a graphical representation of a tree with numbers. It represents the factors of a number as well as the sub-factors of the factors of the number. Here is an example of a factor tree of 49 for you.

2. What is the Sum of All the Factors of 49?

The sum of all the factors of 49 can be achieved by adding all the factors of 49.

So let us add all the factors of 49 to get the sum of all the factors of 49.

Factors of 49 = 1, 7, and 49.

Adding them together: 1 + 7 + 49 = 57

Therefore, the sum of all the factors of 49 is 57.

3. Is 49 a Prime Number or a Composite Number? What is the Difference Between a Prime Number and a Composite Number?

It will be better if we first know the answer of the last question then come back to the first question. So the second question is “What is the difference between a prime number and a composite number?”. Well, if a number is divisible by only 1 and the number itself then it is a prime number. For example, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11 and so on. These numbers cannot be divided by any other number except 1 and the number themselves. On the other hand, if a number is divisible by more than two numbers, it will be called a composite number. For example, 4, 6, 8, 10, and so on. 4 can be divided by 1, 2, and 4, therefore it is a composite number. 6 can be divided by 1, 2, 3, and 6, thus therefore it is also a composite number. Now, coming back to the first question, 49 is a composite number as it can be divided by more than two numbers.
