There is a place in New Zealand that has the longest name for a place in the world. It is called Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu. This place has 85 letters in the name if you counted all of the letters. If you wanted to memorize this place’s name so that you could spell it easily, how would you go about doing it? One way would be to divide the name into chunks and memorize each chunk of letters. To do that, it would be best that each chunk contains the same number of letters as the other groups. Use the factors of 85 to divide the name into equal chunks?
Certain steps are needed to find the factors of a number like 85. You may be able to tell right off the bat that 85 does not have a lot of factors for it. First, it is not an even number. Second, it is not a number that has a single-digit multiplication fact for it. However, let’s see if we can find all of the factors. There might be a surprise set of factors in there that you might not have thought of. This might cause problems because it would be easy to miss factors if they are not obvious.
So, the factors of 85 are only 1, 5, 17, and 85.
With that incredibly long name of the place in New Zealand, you could divide the name into groups of 5 letters each. Then you would have 17 groups. You could also divide the name into 17 letters and memorize 17 letters at a time. You would have 5 groups to memorize.
There are 85 animals on a large farm. There is an equal number of animals on the farm. These animals include pigs, cows, sheep, horses, chickens, deer, fish, doves, turkeys, rabbits, bees, ducks, goats, llamas, geese, donkeys, and oxen. With all of these animals, the farmer in charge must quarantine these animals according to the type of animal they are. He realized this might be difficult since he has to find a place for each type without them mixing together.Use the factors of 85 to find the number of animals that will be in each group.
There would be 5 animals in each group. To find this out, you would need to first count the number of types of animals that the farmer has. In this case, there are 17 types of animals. Then, 17’s factor partner is 5 because 5 times 17 equals 85.
At a convention, 85 people showed up to listen to the speakers as well as attend workshops throughout the day. The schedule for this convention has all of the 85 attendees listening to a speaker introduce the day’s events. Then the people will attend a certain amount of workshops throughout the day and the conference will end with the speaker’s closing words. The people will get to attend whatever workshops they want choose from a list, but there are only 17 slots for each workshop. If there are no slots left, then an attendee must choose another workshop at that time. How many workshops will there be at a time if there are just enough slots available for all 85 attendees? Use the factors of 85 to answer the question.
There would be 5 workshops available at each given time. To figure this out, you would need to know 17’s factor partner, and that is 5.
While taking a test, you realize that each of the 100 problems is worth 1 point and the test is out of 100. You must make an 85% in order to keep your A in that class. Use the factors of 85 to determine how many problems you must get correct to keep your good grade.
You will need to get 85 questions correct out of 100. The way to figure this out is to find 1’s factor partner for 85 which would be 85 because 85 times 1 is 85.
The best way to find a factor partner is to first find the factor. It would be best to start with 2 and see if 2 is a factor for 85. However, it is not. Then, try 3 and 4. Those are not factors either. You may know that 5 is a factor of 85 because the number ends in 5. Then you will need to see what multiplied to 5 will equal 85. In this case, it would be 17.
There are four factors of 85, and these include 1, 5, 17, and 85.
Students need to know the factors of 85 because people group objects together. Grouping of objects is one of the main reasons people need to know the factors of 85.
