What are the Factors of 44?
Let us recall the meaning of the term 'factor'.
 A factor is a number that divides into another number completely without leaving any remainder.
 Factors of 44 are the numbers which when multiplied together result in 44
 4 and 11 are the factors of 44
 This means that 4 divides 44 into equal parts of 11 each.
4 × 11 = 44
However, it should be noted that 44 does not have 4 and 11 as its only factors. It has other factors as well.
Let us see how to calculate the factors of 44
How to Calculate the Factors of 44?
Two steps help us to calculate the factors of 44
 Step 1: Write down the number to be factored, that is, 44
 Step 2: Find the two numbers whose product is 44
Let's say we take 4 and 11 to be the two factors.
11 is a prime number, therefore, it cannot further be split.
4 is not a prime number. Hence, it can be factorized as a product of 2 and 2, apart from the product of 1 and the number itself.
4 can be written as 2 × 2 = 4.
Hence, 44 can be written as: 44 = 2 × 2 × 11
Factors of 44 are 1, 2, 4, 11, 22, 44

Factors of 44 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization is the process of writing a number as a product of its prime factors.
Let us learn how to find the factors of a number using prime factorization.
 Step 1: Write the pair of factors, which on multiplication give the required number.
 Step 2: Check whether the factors are prime or not.
 If both the numbers are prime, they can be multiplied as it is.
 If one of them is prime and the other one is composite, then the composite number is further split into its factors.
 If both the numbers are composite, they can be further split into their factors.
Let us find the factors of 44 by prime factorization using these steps.
 Step 1: 44 can be factored as a product of 4 and 11
 Step 2: 4 is not a prime number and can further be factored as a product of 2 by 2 or as a square of 2
 Step 3: Therefore, 44 can be written as:
44 = 4 × 11 = 2× 2× 11
It can also be written as 44 = 2^{2} × 11
Observe this factor tree.
Now that we have done the prime factorization of our number, we can multiply them 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.
Important Notes:
 Factors of any number are all the possible numbers that can divide the number without leaving any remainder.
They may be prime numbers or composite numbers  Factors can never be fractions or decimals
 Factors can be negative
Factors of 44 in Pairs
Factors are often written as pairs of numbers, which when multiplied together give the original number. Here, the required number is 44. 44 can have the following pair factors:
Factors  Pair Factors 
1 × 44 =44  1,44 
2 × 22 =44  2,22 
4 × 11 =44  4,11 
 The factors given above are the positive pair factors of 44
 It is possible to have negative pair factors as well because the product of two negative numbers also gives a positive number.
 Let's have a look at the negative pair factors of 44:
Factors  Pair Factors 
1 × 44 =44  1,44 
2× 22 =44  2,22 
4× 11 =44  4,11 
Tips and Tricks:
 1 is the smallest factor of every number.
 Every number has a minimum of 2 factors, that is, 1 and the number itself.
 All even numbers always have 2 as one of their factors. For example factors of 44 are 1, 2, 4, 11, 22, 44.

Factors of 44 Solved Examples

Example 1: Eleven students have 44 minutes to speak about themselves. The number of minutes is distributed among them equally. How much time will each one of them get to speak?
Solution:
There are 11 students and 44 minutes.
To divide the time equally among them, we need to determine the factor of 44 which will divide the time equally among 11 students.
So, we divide 44 by 11
44 ÷ 11=4
Since 11 is a factor of 44, when 4 is multiplied by 11, it gives 44
Therefore, each student will get 4 minutes to speak. 
Example 2: Help John find the negative pairs factors of 44
Solution:
Negative pair factors of 44 are given as:
Factors Pair Factors 1 × 44 = 44 1,44 2× 22 = 44 2,22 4× 11 = 44 4,11 
Example 3: A rectangle has an area of 44 square inches and a length of 11 inches. Determine its breadth.
Solution:
The area of the rectangle is length × breadth
The length of the rectangle, which is 11 inches is a factor of the area, which is 44 inches²
When 4 is multiplied by 11, the product is 44
4 × 11=44
This shows that 4 and 11 are the factors of 44
Therefore, the breadth of the rectangle is 4 inches
