FINDING FACTORS THROUGH DIVISION METHOD

**FINDING FACTORS THROUGH DIVISION METHOD:-**

**DIVISION METHOD :-**

**Here we find the factors by finding the numbers with which they are exactly
divisible by using rules of divisibility.**

**Example.1) Find all the factors of 30.**

**[The divisors and quotients are underlined, these are the factors.]
**

** ∴ The factors
of 30 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30.**

**[Arrange the factors in ascending
order - small to big]**

**Example.2) Find the factors of 12.**

**[The divisors and quotients are underlined, these are the factors.]**

**The factors of 12 are 1,2,3,4,6,12.**

**So, 1 is the smallest factor of every
number. The number itself is the greatest
factor.**
