How to Calculate the Factors of 92?
Factors of the number 92 can be calculated as follows:

Write the smallest factor of 92 (except for 1). The smallest factor of 92 is 2, Therefore, 92 ÷ 2 = 46. So, 2 and 46 are the factors of 92.

Write the next smallest factor of 92. The next smallest factor of 92 is 4. Therefore, 92 ÷ 4 = 23. So, 4 and 23 are the factors of 92.

Include 1 and the number itself to write all the factors.
Factors of 92 are 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, and 92.
Important Notes
 The prime factors of a number are different from their factors.
 If a number n has an odd number of positive factors, then n is a perfect square.
 1 and the number itself are also the factors of any number.
 There are no factors of a number n between n and n/2.
 The number that has more than 2 factors is called composite number.
 1 is not a prime number; 2 is the smallest prime number.
Factors of 92 by Prime Factorization
The prime factorization method to calculate the 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 factorization of 92 are 92 = 2 × 2 × 23. Let's write all the factors of 92 using prime factors.

Take all the numbers (2, 2, and 23) and multiply only two at a time, 2 × 2 = 4 and 2 × 23= 46. Factors obtained are 4 and 46.

Write all the factors of the number: 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 96
Factors of 92 in pairs
The pair of factors of number 92 is the set of two numbers which, when multiplied together, give the number 92.
Factors of 92 are 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 92
Factors of 92 in pairs are (1, 92), (2, 46), (4, 23)
Negative factors of 92 are 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 92
Similarly pairs of negative factors of 92 are: (1, 92), (2, 46), (4, 23)
Solved Examples

Example 1 Help Tom to find the sum of all the positive factors of 92.
Solution
Positive factors of 92 are: 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 92
Sum of all the factors is 1 + 2 + 4 + 23 + 46 + 92 = 168.
Therefore, sum of all the positive factors of 92 is 168. 
Example 2 Paul says that there exist only two common factors between 72 and 92, while Chris says there exist three common factors between these numbers. Who is correct?
Solution
Let's first write the factors of 72 and 92
Factors of 72 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 72
Factors of 92 are 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 92Common factors are 1, 2, 4
There are three common factors between 72 and 92.Hence, Chris is correct. 72 and 92 have three common factors..

Example 3 If factors of 92 are arranged in ascending order, the product of two middle factors obtained is P. If the factors are arranged in descending order, the product of two middle factors obtained is Q. Check whether P = Q or not.
Solution
Factors of 92 are 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 92
Factors of 92 arranged in ascending order: 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 92
Middle two factors are 4 and 23
4 × 23 = 92
P = 92Factors of 92 arranged in descending order: 92, 46, 23, 4, 2, 1
Middle two factors are: 23 and 4
23 × 4 = 92
Q = 92Hence, P = Q.
