What Do Factors Mean

So, the definition of a factor is rather straightforward. They are the figures that are combined to produce the result (the answer to a multiplication problem). For instance, the numbers two and three are factors, and six is the product in eq. 2 x 3 = 6.

It’s also crucial to remember that different numbers have varying amounts of variables. A prime number is thirteen. This indicates that this number only has two factors: itself and the number itself. Any other whole number cannot be multiplied by 13 to get the result of 13.

Next, there are numbers like 24. Because it comprises three or more components, twenty-four is a composite number.

1 x 24 = 24

2 x 12 = 24

3 x 8 = 24

4 x 6 = 24

Therefore, the 24 factors are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24.
