What Are the Factors of 14?
The factors of 14 are all the integers that divide 14 without leaving any remainder. 14 is an even composite number. To understand why it is composite, let us recall the definition of a composite number. A composite number is an integer that can be divided by another natural number, apart from itself and 1, without leaving a remainder.
Consider the number 19. It has only two factors which are 1 and 19. As it can only be divided by 1 and 19 completely, it is prime. Let's take the example of 24. The factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24.
Now, let's find the numbers that completely divide 14. The numbers are 1, 2, 7, and 14.
Important Notes

1 is the smallest factor of every number.

14 is a nonperfect square number. Thus, it will have an even number of factors. This property holds for every nonperfect square number.
How to Calculate the Factors of 14?
 Let's begin calculating the factors of 14, starting with the smallest whole number, i.e. 1. On dividing 14 by 1, the remainder is 0. Hence 1 is the factor of 14.
 The next number is 2. Now, 14÷2 = 7, the remainder is 0. Hence 2 is the factor of 14.
 Proceeding in a similar manner we get, 14÷7 = 2 and 14÷14=1.
Thus, the factors of 14 are 1, 2, 7, and 14.

Factors of 14 in Pairs
The pair of numbers that give 14 when multiplied is known as the factor pairs of 14.
Following are the factors of 14 in pairs.
Product form of 14  Pair factor 
1 x 14 = 14  (1,14) 
2 x 7 = 14  (2,7) 
Let's take a look at the negative pair factors of 14. If we consider negative integers, then both the numbers in the pair factors have to be negative. It is possible to have negative pair factors as well because the product of two negative numbers gives a positive number.
Thus, we can have negative factor pairs of 14 as (1,14) and (2,7).
Factors of 14 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization means to express a composite number as the product of its prime factors.
To get the prime factorization of 14, we divide it by its smallest prime factor which is 2.
14/2 = 7
Now, 14 is divided by the remaining prime factors 3, 5, 7, 11, and 13.
14 is only divisible by 7 and we get the quotient as 2.
14/7 = 2
Thus, 14 has 2 prime factors.
Now that we have done the prime factorization of 14, we can multiply it and get the other factors. Can you try and find out if all the factors are covered or not? And as you might have already guessed, for prime numbers, there are no other factors.

Example 1: When a teacher asked a question, some students raised their hands. But instead of raising one hand, each student raised both their hands. If there are 14 hands in total, how many students raised their hands?
Solution
The number of hands raised = 14
To find the number of students who raised their hands, we have to divide 14 by 2 because each student raised both hands.
Number of students = 14/2 = 7
Therefore, 7 students raised their hands.

Example 2: James wanted to count all the positive and negative factors of 14. Help him count them.
Solution
The positive factors of 14 are 1, 2, 7, and 14.
The negative factors of 14 are 1, 2, 7, and 14.
Hence, the total number of factors of 14 is 8.

Example 3: How many factors are there for 14?
Solution:
The factors of 14 are 1, 2, 7, 14. Therefore, 14 has 4 factors.
FAQs on Factors of 14
