How to Calculate the Factors of 400
 Let's begin calculating the factors of 400, starting with the whole number 1. Keep dividing 400 by each number with the help of the divisibility rules too.
 400 ÷ 1 = 400 and the remainder is 0.
 400 ÷ 2 = 200 and the remainder is 0.
 Proceeding in a similar manner we get all the factors of 400 as 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 25, 40, 50, 80, 100, 200 and 400.
Factors of 400 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization means expressing a composite number as the product of its prime factors.
 To get the prime factorization of 400, we divide it by its smallest prime factor, which is 2. 400÷ 2 = 200
 Now, 200 is divided by its smallest prime factor and the quotient is obtained. 200÷ 2 = 100
 This process goes on till we get the quotient as 1.
 The prime factorization of 400 is shown below:

Let us express 400 in terms of the product of its prime factors with the help of the factor tree obtained. 400= 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 = 2^{4} × 5^{2.}. Now that we have done the prime factorization of our number, we can multiply them and get the other possible composite factors.
