Converting factors of 2
Factors are numbers that can divide without remainder.
Factors of 22/1 = 2 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 1
2/2 = 1 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 2
We get factors of 2 numbers by finding numbers that can divide 2 without remainder or alternatively numbers that can multiply together to equal the target number being converted.
In considering numbers than can divide 2 without remainders. So we start with 1, then check 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, etc and 2
Getting factors is done by dividing 2 with numbers lower to it in value to find the one that will not leave remainder. Numbers that divide without remainders are the factors.
