Q: How do you get rectangles from a list of factor pairs?

Write your answer...

Number of factor pairs = number of rectangles

One to one.

As I understand it, the number of factor pairs is equal to the number of rectangles.

One to one.

One to one. Each factor pair represents a rectangle.

rectangles = factor pairs

One to one

22 x 1 11 x 2

One rectangle per factor pair, six total.

(15,1)(5,3)

(21,1)(7,3)

1 and A

Too many to list.

(50,1)(25,2)(10,5)

Too many to list here.

(22,1)(11,2)

The answer depends on the number of tiles.

I think you are thinking of using the rectangles like you use Punnet squares. One side is multiplied times the other side and the product is put in the inside squares. This is handy when trying to factor expressions that are polynomials.

The factor pairs of 50 are: 1 x 50 2 x 25 5 x 10

The factor pairs of 18 are (1 x 18), (2 x 9), (3 x 6)

8 and 1. 4 and 2.

(16,1)(8,2)(4,4)

(66,1)(33,2)(22,3)(11,6)

All numbers have factors. It is possible to list them as pairs. The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12. The factor pairs of 12 are (12,1)(6,2)(4,3)
