**Factor Pairs of 10:** Factors of 10 can be written in pairs, as was demonstrated in the factors tree approach. This suggests that the pair’s product is always 10, as shown by the statement. Following are the 10 factors in pairs:

Positive Factor Pairs of 10 | (1, 10) and (2, 5) |

Negative Pair Factors of 10 | (-1, -10) and (-2, -5) |

**Factor Pairs of 10**

1 and 10 are a factor pair of 10 because 1 x 10 = 10

2 and 5 are a factor pair of 10 because 2 x 5 = 10

So, (1, 10) and (2, 5) are factor pairs of 10.

**Negative Pair Factors of 10 | Pair Factors of -10**

There are also negative pair factors, which are like positive pair factors. Both of the terms in the pair are negative, but when you multiply them together, you get a positive term.

-1 and -10 are a factor pair of 10 because -1 x -10 = 10

-2 and -5 are a factor pair of 10 because -2 x -5 = 10

Therefore, (-1, -10) and (-2, -5) are a negative factor pairs of 10.
