## How to Calculate the Factors of 24

Factors must be the whole numbers, which means fractions like 5.6 is not considered as a factor. We use the integers to divide 24, if there is no remainder, then the integers you use are the factors of 24. We can always dividing 24 by 1 to get started, then move to different integers.

24/1 = 24 (Factor = 1 and remainder = 0)

24/2 = 12 (Factor = 2 and remainder = 0)

24/3 = 8 (Factor = 3 and remainder = 0)

24/4 = 6 (Factor = 4 and remainder = 0)

### Note:

If we divide 24 by numbers other than 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 14, 28 and 24, there must be a remainder. Let us try 3, ## Examples
