What are Divisors of 100

A number n is a divisor of 100 if $\frac{100}{n}$ is an integer. Note that if 100/n=m is an integer, then both m and n will be the divisors of 100.

To find the divisors of 100, we need to find the numbers n such that 100/n becomes an integer. We have:

100/1=100 1, 100 are divisors of 100.
100/2=50 2, 50 are divisors of 100
100/4=25 4, 25 are divisors of 100
100/5=20 5, 20 are divisors of 100
100/10=10 10 is a divisor of 100

No numbers other than 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, and 100 can divide 100. So we conclude that

The divisors of 100 are:

1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50 and 100.

Thus, the total number of divisors of 100 is nine.

Negative Divisors of 100

We know that if m is a divisor of a number, then -m is also a divisor of that number.

As the divisors of 100 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50 and 100, we can say that:

The negative divisors of 100 are -1, -2, -4, -5, -10, -20, -25, -50 and -100.

 

Prime Divisors of 100

The divisors of 100 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50 and 100. Among these numbers, only 2 and 5 are prime numbers. So we obtain that:

The prime divisors of 100 are 2 and 5.

 

Key Things

The prime factorization of 100 is given below.

100 = 22 × 52

(i) By the number of divisors formula, we have that the number of divisors of 100 is

=(2+1)(2+1)=3×3=9.

(ii) By the sum of divisors formula, we have that the sum of the divisors of 100 is

$=\frac{2^3-1}{2-1} \times \frac{5^3-1}{5-1}$

$=\frac{8-1}{1} \times \frac{125-1}{4}$

$=7 \times 31=217$

(iii) By the product of divisors formula, we have that the product of the divisors of 100 is

=100(Number of divisors of 100)/2

=1009/2

=109
