What Are the Factors of 70?
Factors of a number n are the numbers that completely divide the number n. It implies that if the remainder is 0 when n is divided by a, then a is a factor of n.
We are talking about factors of the number 70. Let's first see the numbers that completely divide 70.
The numbers that divide 70 completely are 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, and 70.
How to Calculate the Factors of 70?
Factors of any number n can be calculated by many methods; one of the methods is dividing the number by the smallest of the factors.
Factors of number 70 can be calculated as follows:
 Step 1: Write the smallest two factors of 70 (except for 1). The smallest two factors of 70 are 2 and 5.
 Step 2: Divide 70 by 2 and 5.
70/2 = 35 and 70/5 = 14
So, 2, 5, 14, and 35 are the factors of 70.  Step 3: Now take the next factor of 70.
The next factor of 70 is 7.
Divide 70 by 7.
70/7 = 10
So, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, and 35 are the factors of 70.  Step 4: Include 1 and the number itself to the factors.
Hence, the factors of 70 are 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, and 70.
To understand the concept of finding factors by prime factorization better, let us take a few more examples.
 Factors of 36  The factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36

 Factors of 270  The factors of 270 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 15, 18, 27, 30, 45, 54, 90, 135, 270
 Factors of 150  The factors of 150 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 25, 30, 50, 75, 150
 Factors of 90  The factors of 90 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 15, 18, 30, 45, 90
 Factors of 24  The factors of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24
Factors of 70 by Prime Factorization
The prime factorization method to calculate factors of any number is one of the most important methods. Many students prefer using prime factorization while performing calculations. In the prime factorization method, we can only factorize a number into its prime factors. Prime numbers are the numbers that have only two factors, 1 and the number itself.
For example, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, and so on.
Prime factors of 70 are 2, 5, and 7.
70 = 2 × 5 × 7
Let's write all the factors of 70 using prime factors
 Step 1: Take the prime factors of 70: 2, 5, and 7.
 Step 2: Multiply the prime factors of 70, taking two at a time.
2 × 5 = 10
2 × 7 = 14
5 × 7 = 35
Factors obtained are 10, 14, and 35.  Step 3: Write all the factors of the number 70.
1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, 70
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.
Factors of 70 in Pairs
Pair factors of number n are the set of two numbers which when multiplied together give the number n.
Factors of 70 are: 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, 70
Factors of 70 in pairs are: (1, 70), (2, 35), (5, 14), (7, 10)
 1 × 70 = 70
 2 × 35 = 70
 5 × 14 = 70
 7 × 10 = 70
Pairs of negative factors of 70 are: (1, 70), (2, 35), (5, 14), (7, 10)
 1 × 70 = 70
 2 × 35 = 70
 5 × 14 = 70
 7 × 10 = 70
Important Notes:
 Every number has at least two factors, i.e., 1 and the number itself.
 There are no factors of a number n between (n, n/2).
 Numbers that have more than 2 factors are called composite numbers.

Solved Examples

Example 1: Sam wants to empty two buckets full of water with capacities of 140 liters and 70 liters. He needs to empty the buckets with the help of a glass. What capacity of glass should he choose so that no water remains in any of the buckets.
Solution:
Given:
The capacity of one bucket = 140 liters
The capacity of the other bucket = 70 litersTo find the capacity of glass we need to calculate the HCF (Highest Common Factor) of 70 and 140.
70 = 1 × 2 × 5 × 7
140 = 1 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 7HCF of 70 and 140 = 2 × 5 × 7 = 70
Hence, Sam will use a glass of capacity 70 liters. 
Example 2: John wants to find the common factors of 70, 420, and 560.
Solution:
Factors of 70 are 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, 70
Factors of 420 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 20, 21, 28, 30, 35, 42, 60, 70, 84, 105, 140, 210, 420
Factors of 560 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 14, 16, 20, 28, 35, 40, 56, 70, 80, 112, 140, 280, 560Hence, the common factors of 70, 420, and 560 are 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 35, and 70.

Example 3: Julia wants to add a number to 6 so that it becomes a factor of 70. What numbers can she add?
Solution:
Let's suppose she adds x to 6
So (x + 6) is a factor of 70.
Let's write down all the factors of 70 greater than 6:7, 10, 14, 35, 70
x + 6 = 7
x + 6 = 10
x + 6 = 14
x + 6 = 35
x + 6 = 70Hence, Julia can add 1, 4, 8, 29, or 64 to 6 to get a factor of 70.
