What Are the Factors of 576?
The factor of a number is the number that divides it completely, i.e., leaving no remainder. For example, to find the factors of the number 576, we will have to perform division on 576 and find the numbers which divide 576 completely, leaving no remainders. Since 576 is a composite number, it has many factors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 16, 18, 24, 32, 36, 48, 64, 72, 96, 144, 192, 288, and 576.
Important Notes:
 If the number of factors of any number n is odd, then the number n is a perfect square.
 The factors of a number are only considered to be positive factors if not specified.
 Any number always has two factors, 1 and the number itself.
 Numbers that have more than 2 factors are called composite numbers.
How to Calculate the Factors of 576?
To calculate the factors of any number, here in this case 576, we need to find all the numbers that would divide 576 without leaving any remainder.
Steps to finding the factors of any number:
 Divide the number by 2 and get another number. If the resultant number is not an integer, then round it to the nearest integer.
 Divide the given number by each of the numbers from 1 to the resultant number (from step 1) and see which of them results in the remainder 0. We divide only by these numbers as any number that is greater than half of a given number cannot be its factor.
 The divisor of each such division (with remainder 0) is the factor of that number. Also, the given number is also a factor of itself.
Finding the Factors of 576
Dividing 576 by 2, we get 288. Divide 576 by each of the numbers from 1 to 288 and see which of them would give the remainder as 0. The divisors of all such divisions are the factors. Also, 576 is a factor of itself. Thus, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 16, 18, 24, 32, 36, 48, 64, 72, 96, 144, 192, 288, and 576 are factors of 576.

Example 2 Marcos says that (1, 576) is a factor pair of 576, while Diana says that (1,576) is a factor pair of 576. Who is correct?
Solution
To check whether the above pairs are factor pairs of 576 or not we have to multiply them.
Jacob's factor pair is (1,576)
1 × 576 = 576
576 is not equal to 576.Diana's factor pair is (1, 576)
1 × 576 = 576
576 is equal to 576.Hence, (1,576) is a pair factor of 576. Diana is correct.
