What Are the Factors of 52?
The factors of 52 are the numbers (integers) that divide 52 without leaving any remainder.
For example, when 52 is divided by 13, the remainder is 0.
Hence, 13 is a factor of 52.
The steps to find the factors of any number are given below.
 Divide the number by 2 or find half of the number. If the result is a decimal, round it to the nearest integer.
 Divide the given number by all numbers from 1 to the resultant number that you have obtained in step 1 and see which of them would give 0 as the remainder.
This is because numbers beyond "half of the given number" cannot be the factors of the given number.
 We do not need to divide the given number by the quotients of the divisions that gave the remainder 0.
 List the divisors and quotients of all such divisions. These are the factors of the number.
Finding Factors of 52
Half of 52 is 26.
We divide 52 by each number from 1 to 26 leaving the quotients of the divisions that give the remainder 0.
Then the divisions with 0 as the remainder are:
1 ÷ 52 = 52
2 ÷ 52 = 26
4 ÷ 52 = 13
In the above examples, quotient 52, 26, and 13 is also a factor.
Thus, the factors of 52 are 1, 2, 4, 13, 26, and 52.
Tips and Tricks:
 When you divide a number by its factor, the quotient of the division is also a factor.
When we divide 52 by 13, we get 4 as the quotient. This quotient is also a factor. We do not need to separately divide 52 by 4 and see whether we get the remainder as 0.  Every number has a minimum of two factors, 1 and itself.
 Applying divisibility rules to find factors makes our work easier when compared to doing manual division.

Factors of 52 by Prime Factorization
The prime factorization of 52 involves the products of prime numbers which give the result as 52.
Thus, the prime factorization of 52 is 52 = 2 × 2 × 13
From the prime factorization of 52, it is clear that 2 and 13 are factors of 52.
In fact, 2 and 13 are the prime factors of 52.
By multiplying different sets of multiplicands of the above prime factorization using different combinations, we get the other factors (composite factors) of 52.
2 × 2 = 4
2 × 13 = 26
2 × 2 × 13 = 52
So 4, 26, and 52 are the composite factors of 52.
We know that 1 is a factor of every number.
Thus, the factors of 52 by prime factorization are 1, 2, 4, 13, 26, and 52

Factors of 52 Solved Examples

Example 1: Mason asked his friend to name any two factors of 52 within 30 seconds.
Mason's friend thought and immediately gave him two factors of 52. What could be those two factors?
Solution:
Every number will definitely have a minimum of two factors, 1 and itself.
So, without thinking too much, we can say that 1 and 52 are the factors of 52.
Hence, the two factors of 52 that Mason's friend mentioned are probably 1 and 52.
