# Factors Calculator

Factors calculator computes the factors of the given number such that when the factor values are multiplied by each other, we get the original number. A factor can be defined as an integer that divides the given number exactly without leaving any remainder.

## What is a Factors Calculator?

Factors Calculator is an online tool that helps find the factors for the given number. We can calculate the factors of a number both by division as well as multiplication. When factors are multiplied they yield the original number. To use this * factors calculator*, enter the value in the input box.

## How Does Factors Calculator Work?

Suppose we multiply two whole numbers. This gives us a product. These two numbers are also known as the factors of the product. The factor of a number will be a whole number. Decimals and fractions cannot be factors of a number. The number 2 will always be one of the factors of an even number. If a number has 5 in its units place then 5 will always be a factor of such a number. Suppose a number greater than zero, has 0 in its units place. Then 2, 5, and 10 will definitely be factors of such a number. One of the best ways to solve algebraic expressions is by factoring them. Given below are the steps to factorize a number using the multiplication method.

- Express the number as a product of 2 numbers.
- Find all possible unique combinations to write the given number as a product of 2 whole numbers.
- List down all these combinations, without repetition.
- The numbers used in the different products will give us the factors of the given number.

## Solved Examples on Factors Calculator

**Example 1:**

List the factors of 28 and verify them using the factors calculator.

**Solution:**

28 can be factorized in the following way:

1 × 28 = 28

2 × 14 = 28

4 × 7 = 28

Thus, the factors of 28 are 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, and 28.

**Example 2:**

List the factors of 92 and verify them using the factors calculator.

**Solution:**

92 can be factorized in the following way:

1 × 92 = 92

2 × 46 = 92

4 × 23 = 92

Thus, the factors of 28 are 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, and 92.

Similarly, you can try the factors calculator to find the factors for the following:

- 60
- 18
- 52
