What Are the Factors of 112?
Factors of a number are the exact divisors of the number leaving the remainder as 0. For exanple, let's divide 112 by 16.
1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 14, 16, 28, 56, and 112 are all the factors of 112.
How to Calculate the Factors of 112?
Find all the divisors of 112 by using the divisibility rules. 112 is divisible by 1 and itself. 112 is even, so divisibile by 2. Its last 2 digits are multiple of 4, so divisible by 4. By checking the divisibility with all the numbers, we determine all the factors of 112.
 112 ÷ 2 = 56
 112 ÷ 4 = 28
 112 ÷ 7 = 16
 112 ÷ 8 = 14
All the divisors and the quotient obtained on division form the factors of 112. Thus, the factors of 112 are 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 14, 16, 28, 56, and 112.

Factors of 112 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization is a way of expressing a number as a product of its prime factors.
Follow the steps given below to find the factors of 112 using prime factorization.
 Find the smallest prime that exactly divides 112, and get the quotient.
 Write the quotient thus obtained and find the smallest prime, divide it and obtain the quotient.
 Again find the smallest prime that exactly divides the quotient obtained in step 2 and write the quotient.
 Repeat the process until you obtain the quotient as 1.

Now that we have done the prime factorization of our number, we can multiply the factors obtained and get other factors.
Factors of 112 in Pairs
 Factor pairs of 112 are the pairs of factors which, when multiplied together, result in a product equal to the number 112.
 (1 × 112), (2 × 56), (4 × 28), (7 × 16), (8 ×14) make 112.
 Thus, we have (1, 112), (1, 112), (2, 56), (2, 56), (4, 28), (4, 28), (7, 16), (7, 16), (8, 14), and (8, 14) as the factors of 112 in ordered pairs.
Important Notes:
 Factors of 112 are the numbers that exactly divide 112, without any remainder.
 The prime factorization 112 is 112 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 7.
 The number 112 has five pairs of distinct factors.
Factors of 112 Solved Examples

Example 1: Aaron bought a new house. He wants his house number in such a way that the number is the greatest common factor of 96 and 112. What number can he use as his house number?
Solution:
The factors of 96 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, and 96.
The factors of 112 are: 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 14, 16, 28, 56, and 112.
The greatest common factor of 96 and 112 is 16.
So the number that he can choose is 16.

Example 2: How do you draw a factor tree of 112?
Solution:
On dividing 112 by 56, we get 112 ÷ 56 = 2.
Go further and keep dividing. 56 ÷2 = 28, 28 ÷ 2 = 14, 14 ÷ 2 =7
Thus the prime factorization of 112 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 is obtained by drawing the factor tree of 112.
