What are the factors of 48?

Factors of 48 can be either positive or negative. Now to calculate the factors of 36, follow the steps given below.

Step 1. Write 48.

Step 2. As 48 is the multiple of 24 and 2 thus it can be written as 24 x 2.

Step 3. 48 = 24 x 2

Step 4. As 24 is the multiple of 12 and 2 thus it can be written as 12 x 2.

Step 5. 48 = 12 x 2 x 2

Step 6. As 12 can be written as a multiple of 6 and 2 thus is 6 x 2.

Step 7. Now write 6 as a multiple of 2 and 3.

Step 8. 24 = 2 x 3 x 2 x 2 x 2

Step 9. As we know that a number has 1 as well as itself as its factor so 1 and 48 are also the factors of 48.

Conclusion: Factors of 48 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 48.
