# What are the factors of 24?

Apr 3, 2016

1, -1, 2, -2, 3, -3, 4, -4, 6, -6, 8, -8, 12, -12, 24, -24

#### Explanation:

$1 \times 24$
$2 \times 12$
$3 \times 8$
$4 \times 6$

Of course, we can also multiply two negatives to get 24:

$- 1 \times - 24$
$- 2 \times - 12$
$- 3 \times - 8$
$- 4 \times - 6$

So a list of all possible factors is:

1, -1, 2, -2, 3, -3, 4, -4, 6, -6, 8, -8, 12, -12, 24, -24

Hope this helps; let me know if I can do anything else:)
