Here is how you calculate the factors of 56. Take 56 and the number 1. Those are the first two factors.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 56 = 56, so put these into our factor list.
    1...56

  2. Take 2. 2 x 28 = 56, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...2856

  3. Now take 3... no. 56/3 isn't a whole number. So we skip 3.

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 14 = 56, so we add these to our list of factors.
    124...142856

  5. Now try 5... nope! 56/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6... no good. 56/6 isn't a whole number. So we skip 6.

  7. Take 7. 7 x 8 = 56, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    1247...8142856

  8. Now, since we don't have any more numbers to try, we're done!
