Solution

Converting factors of 3

Factors are numbers that can divide without remainder.

Factors of 3

3/1 = 3         gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 1
3/3 = 1         gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 3


We get factors of 3 numbers by finding numbers that can divide 3 without remainder or alternatively numbers that can multiply together to equal the target number being converted.

In considering numbers than can divide 3 without remainders. So we start with 1, then check 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, etc and 3

Getting factors is done by dividing 3 with numbers lower to it in value to find the one that will not leave remainder. Numbers that divide without remainders are the factors.
