How to Calculate Factors of 320?
 Step 1: Write down the number to be factored which is 320.
 Step 2: Find the two numbers whose product gives 320.
 As we know 320 is a product of 10 and 32.
 10 is not a prime number. Hence, 10 = 2 × 5
 32 is not a prime number. 32 = 4 × 8.
 32 can also be factored as 2 × 16.
 Thus we obtain the factors 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, and 16 and their pair factors 20,32, 40, 64, 80,160, and 320 that make 320.
 Step 3: Thus the factors of 320 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 32, 40, 64, 80, 160 and 320.
Factors of 320 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization is finding which prime numbers multiply together to make the original number.
 Step 1: 320 can be factored as a product of 16 and 20.
 Step 2: We see the factors, whether each one of them is prime or not. 16 is not a prime number and can be factored as 4 × 4. 4 is a composite number and it can be factored as 2 × 2. 20 is not a prime number and can be factored as 2 × 10. 10 is a composite number and it can be factored as 2 × 5. 2 and 5 are prime, and hence we can stop factoring.
 Step 3: As per the criterion, the prime factorization of 320 can also be written as 320 = 2^{6} × 5

Factors of 320 in Pairs
Pair factors of the number 320 are the two whole numbers that multiply to get the original number. Pair factors could be either positive or negative but not a fraction or a decimal number.
 Positive factors of 320: (1, 320), (2, 160), (4, 80), (5, 64), (8, 40), (10, 32), (16, 20 ), (20, 16), (32, 10), (40, 8), (64, 5), (80, 4), (160, 2), (320, 1)
 Negative factors of 320: (1, 320), (2, 160), (4, 80), (5, 64), (8, 40), (10, 32), (16, 20 ), (20, 16), (32, 10), (40, 8), (64, 5), (80, 4), (160,2), (320, 1)
Tips and Tricks:
 1 is the smallest factor of every number. Hence, 1 is a factor of 320
 320 is an even number, 2 as one of their factors.
 320 is a number that ends in 0, hence 1, 2, 5, and 10 are its factors.

Factors of 320 Solved Examples

Example 1: Johnathan owns a bakery. He got an order of 320 cookies to be baked. If he bakes 5 cookies in an hour, how long will it take for him to bake all the cookies?
Solution:
Johnathan can bake 5 cookies in an hour. The amount of time needed for Johnathan to bake 320 cookies will be given by 320 ÷ 5.
This gives Johnathan can bake 320 cookies in 64 hours. 
Example 2: Josephine's teacher gave her 2 numbers, 320 and 203 to find the common factors among both of them. Help her find the common factors in both of 320 and 203.
Solution:
Josephine knows factors of 320 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 32, 40, 64, 80, 160 and 320. 203 can be factored as 203 = 7 × 29. Hence the factors of 203 are 1, 7, 29 and 203.
