As an online presenter, you have a presentation coming up with a large group of 27 attendees. You want to make sure that everyone in the class not only participates but understands the information. Near the end of the presentation, you want each student to type in their answers to a short quiz.
However, as the answers are coming into the chat box, it will be difficult to check the answers if all 27 students are typing in their answers at once. Think about how you can divide the screen into sections.
Then a small group of the attendees can be working on the quiz, while the other groups are doing other things that don’t require the chat box. How could you get this done?
This may be easier said than done. However, with many online teachers, there is a need to hold students accountable. See how you could do this. The beset way is to use the factors of 27.
Factors of 27 are 1, 3, 9 and 27
Below is a diagram showing how to find the factors by presenting you with options to find all of the factors. Using the diagram, you know from the green box that 1 and 27 are factors of 27 because all numbers have factors of 1 and itself.
Next, we need to know if the number is an even or odd number. Twenty-seven is an odd number, so 2 will not be a factor. It is an odd number, so we will try 3 to see if 3 is a factor. It is because 3 can evenly divide into 9 without having a remainder.
We now need to find 3’s factor partner. So, what times 3 will equal 27. That would be 9. So, 9 is also a factor of 27. Now, we need to look at the rest of the numbers.
TIP:However, here is a tip. Once you have the highest factor, which would be paired with the lowest factor, you only have to look in between that set of numbers. So, besides 1, 3 is the lowest factor for 27. Its factor partner is 9. That would be the highest factor, so we need to look in between those two numbers.
Four, five, six, seven, and eight are not factors of 27. Instead, they have a remainder if you tried to divide them into 27.
Our factors for 27 are the following:
An amendment is a rule or law that has been added onto the U.S Constitution after it was written at some point in history after the document first originated. Today, there are 27 amendments to the Constitution. If you want to memorize them in equally-numbered groups, how many choices would you have?
We would need to use the factors of 27 to find out our answer. We could also divide. However, that might take a little longer. We know that the factors of 27 are 1, 3, 9, and 27. You would have 4 choices. You could memorize 1 big group of 27, which would not help in this situation. You could also have 3 groups of 9 amendments or 9 groups of 3 amendments. These two choices would be the better choices for memorizing. However, you could also have 27 groups of 1 amendment each. That doesn’t seem realistic for helpful with memorizing.
There are 27 candies. You want to give each of your friends an equal number of candies. How many friends could you have to make this happen?
To figure this out, it would be best to write down the factors of 27. These are 1, 3, 9, and 27. You could have 27 friends and give them 1 piece of candy each. You could have 1 friend and give them all 27 pieces. You could also have 3 friends and give them 9 pieces of candy each or 9 friends and give them 3 pieces of candy each.
At the state championship baseball game, there are 3 games left to determine the winner and runners-up. If each inning lasts about 10 minutes and there would be 27 innings. How long would all 3 games last? Use the information about factors of 27.
in the question, it doesn’t tell you how many innings there are in a baseball game, but you can figure that out. With the factors of 27, you know that they would be 1, 3, 9 and 27. Since there are three games and 27 innings total, that would be 9 innings per game. If each inning takes about 10 minutes, each game would last about 90 minutes or 270 minutes for all three games.
There are not a whole lot of things that come in groups of 27 often unless it just happens to be, but there are things that come in groups of 9 like squares on a tic-tac-toe board and members on a baseball team. However, you would need 3 of them for it to be a group of 27.
To find the factors of 27, you would need to divide all of the numbers from 1 and 27 into 27 to see if they evenly divide into that number without having a remainder. If the number has a remainder, then it is not a factor of 27.
There are 4 factors of 27. They are 1, 3, 9, and 27. The other numbers from 2 through 26 are not factors because they have a remainder when you divide them into 27.
