How to Calculate the Factors of 108?
Let us calculate the factors of 108 using the division method.
When considering numbers that can divide 108 without remainders, we start with 1, then check 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc. up to 54 (which is exactly half of 108).
Dividing  Remainder 

108 ÷ 1 
Gives remainder 0. So, 1 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 2 
Gives remainder 0. So, 2 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 3 
Gives remainder 0. So, 3 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 4 
Gives remainder 0. So, 4 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 6 
Gives remainder 0. So, 6 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 9 
Gives remainder 0. So, 9 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 12 
Gives remainder 0. So, 12 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 18 
Gives remainder 0. So, 18 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 27 
Gives remainder 0. So, 27 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 36 
Gives remainder 0. So, 36 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 54 
Gives remainder 0. So, 54 is a factor. 
108 ÷ 108 
Gives remainder 0. So, 108 is a factor. 
Factors of 108 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization is finding which prime numbers multiply together to make the original number.
 The first step is to divide the number 108 with the smallest prime factor, say 2. 108 ÷ 2 = 54
 Divide 54 again by 2. 54 ÷ 2 = 27
 Now if we will divide by 2, we will get a fractional number, and a factor cannot be a fraction or a decimal number. So, proceed with the next prime factor, i.e., 3. 27 ÷ 3 = 9
 Divide again by 3. 9 ÷ 3 = 3
 And again 3 ÷ 3 = 1
 Finally, we receive the number 1 at the end of the division process. We cannot proceed further.
 So, the prime factors of 108 are written as 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3, where 2 and 3 are prime numbers.
Finding prime factors by factor tree
The same division process is best represented in the form of a factor tree as given below. A factor tree is a special branching diagram where we find the factors of a number, then the factors of those numbers, etc. until we cannot factorize them anymore. The ends of a factor tree are all the prime factors of the original number.
Factors of 108 in Pairs
Pair factors of the number 108 are the two whole numbers that multiply to get 108. Pair factors could be either positive or negative but not a fraction or a decimal number.
 Positive factors of 108: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 27, 36, 54, and 108
 Negative factors of 108 1, 2, 3 , 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 27, 36, 54, and 108
Important Notes:
 Only whole numbers and integers can be factors.
 Only composite numbers can have more than two factors.
 Every factor of a given number is either less than or equal to the given number.
 The number of factors of a given number is finite.
