Solution
Converting factors of 5,8
Factors are numbers that can divide without remainder.
Factors of 5
5/1 = 5 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 15/5 = 1 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 5
Factors of 8
8/1 = 8 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 18/2 = 4 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 2
8/4 = 2 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 4
8/8 = 1 gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 8
We get factors of 5,8 numbers by finding numbers that can divide 5,8 without remainder or alternatively numbers that can multiply together to equal the target number being converted.
In considering numbers than can divide 5,8 without remainders. So we start with 1, then check 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, etc and 5,8
Getting factors is done by dividing 5,8 with numbers lower to it in value to find the one that will not leave remainder. Numbers that divide without remainders are the factors.
