Examples on factors on different types of questions on factors are discussed here step-by-step.

1. Find all the factors of 42.


According to properties of factors, 1 and 42 are the factors of 42.

Now we find the numbers which completely divide 42.

Examples on Factors

By dividing the numbers we find the factors of 42.

Thus, 1, 2, 3, 7 are complete dividers. 

2 x 3 = 6; 3 x 7 = 21; 2 x 7 = 14; are also divisors. 

Hence, 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14, 21 and 42 are the factors of 42.

2. Check if:

(i) 9 is a factor of 74, 

(ii) 7 is a factor of 84. 



Divisible by 9

74 is not divisible by 9.

So, 9 is not a factor of 74.


Divisible by 7

84 is divisible by 7.

So, 7 is a factor of 84.

Students can practice these examples on factors which are discussed here step-by-step.
