# Examples on Factors

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

1. Find all the factors of 42.

Solution:

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

Now we find the numbers which completely divide 42. 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.

Solution:

(i) 74 is not divisible by 9.

So, 9 is not a factor of 74.

(ii) 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.
