Number

The factor calculator will determine the factors of any positive integer. A factor is any number that divides evenly into another number. There are rules of divisibility that greatly assists one in finding factors by hand. They are as follows:

- Any even number is divisible by
`2`

. - A number is divisible by
`3`

if the sum of the digits in the number is divisible by`3`

. - A number is divisible by
`4`

if the last two digits form a number that is divisible by`4`

. - Any number ending in
`5`

or`0`

is divisible by`5`

. - A number is divisible by
`6`

if it is divisible by`2`

and`3`

. - If the last three digits form a number that is divisible by
`8`

, then the entire number is divisible by`8`

. - If the sum of the digits are divisible by
`9`

, the entire number is divisible by`9`

. - Any number ending in
`0`

is divisible by`10`

.

There are many aspects of mathematics where it is important to be able to get factors. The factor calculator is helpful in finding the greatest common factor, least common multiple and prime factorization.

Prime factorization is an extension of factorization in which all the factors are prime numbers. For example, suppose we want the prime factorization of `48`

. The factors of `48`

are `1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48`

. Notice those are not all prime numbers, so we have to break it down further. When completing the process, we get `2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 3`

. Although `1`

is a factor, many mathematicians now do not consider `1`

to be a prime number. The prime factorization calculator is a handy tool to obtain these factors.

Another area of interest is calculating the greatest common factor of a set of numbers. To do so, we get the prime factorization of all the numbers. Then multiply all the factors that are the same in each set. For example, suppose we want the GCF of `24`

, `44`

and `68`

. The prime factorizations are `24 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 3`

, `44 = 2 * 2 * 11`

and `68 = 2 * 2 * 17`

. Notice the only number present in all sets of factors is `2`

, which appears in common twice, so the GCF is `2 * 2 = 4`

. The GCF calculator will provide this result simply and quickly.

Closely related to the GCF is the LCM or least common multiple. The process is nearly the same to find the LCM. We get the prime factorizations and now multiply the highest power of all factors present. IN the above example, the LCM would be `2 * 2 * 2 * 3 * 11 * 17 = 4,488`

. The use of the least common multiple calculator will make a sometimes tedious process by hand much easier.

**Note that the factor calculator gives the factors of 0 or any negative number as 1. We should only use positive integers in the factor calculator.**
