  • Product of divisors of 50: 503

 

What are Divisors of 50

A number n is a divisor of 50 if $\frac{50}{n}$ is an integer. Note that if 50/n=m is an integer, then both m and n will be the divisors of 50.

To find the divisors of 50, we need to find the numbers n such that 50/n becomes an integer. We have:

50/1=50 1, 50 are divisors of 50.
50/2=25 2, 25 are divisors of 50
50/5=10 5, 10 are divisors of 50

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

The divisors of 50 are:

1, 2, 5, 10, 25 and 50.

Thus, the total number of divisors of 50 is six.

 

Negative Divisors of 50

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

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

The negative divisors of 50 are -1, -2, -5, -10, -25, and –50.

 

Prime Divisors of 50

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

The prime divisors of 50 are 2 and 5.

 

Key Things

The prime factorization of 50 is given below.

50 = 21 × 52

(i) By the number of divisors formula, we have that the number of divisors of 50 is

=(1+1)(2+1)=2×3=6.

(ii) By the sum of divisors formula, we have that the sum of the divisors of 50 is

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

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

$=3 \times 31=93$

(iii) By the product of divisors formula, we have that the product of the divisors of 50 is

=50(Number of divisors of 50)/2

=506/2

=503
