Factors are discussed here with examples.

*Each of the numbers multiplied together to form a product is called a factor of the product.*

**For Example:**

(i) 2 and 3 are the factors of 6 as 2 × 3 = 6.

Also, 1 × 6 = 6

Since 1 and 6 are also factors of 6.

Thus, 1, 2, 3 and 6 are factors of 6 as each of these numbers (1, 2, 3 and 6) divides number 6 exactly.

(ii) 3 and 5 are the factors of 15 as 3 × 5 = 15.

Also, 1 × 15 = 15

Since 1 and 15 are also factors of 15.

Thus, 1, 3, 5 and 15 are factors of 15 as each of these numbers (1, 3, 5 and 15) divides number 15 exactly.

(iii) 3 and 7 are the factors of 21 as 3 × 7 = 21.

Also, 1 × 21 = 21

Since 1 and 21 are also factors of 21.

Thus, 1, 3, 7 and 21 are factors of 21 as each of these numbers (1, 3, 7 and 21) divides number 21 exactly.

(iv) 5 and 7 are the factors of 35 as 5 × 7 = 35.

Also, 5 × 7 = 35

Since 1 and 35 are also factors of 35.

Thus, 1, 5, 7 and 35 are factors of 35 as each of these numbers (1, 5, 7 and 35) divides number 35 exactly.

In other words, *a factor of a given number divides the given number exactly*.

**In every number there are a fixed number of factors.**
