What Are the Factors of 48?

The factors of 48 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48.

This is how to find the factors of 48. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 48 = 48, so put these into our factor list.
    1...48

  2. Take 2. 2 x 24 = 48, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...2448

  3. Now take 3. 3 x 16 = 48, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123...162448

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 12 = 48, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234...12162448

  5. Now try 5... nope! 48/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6. 6 x 8 = 48, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12346...812162448

  7. Take 7... no. 48/7 isn't a whole number. So we skip 7.

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