### How to calculate factors of 60

The factors are numbers that can divide 60 without remainder.

Every number is divisible by itself and 1.

Calculating factors of 60

60/1 = 60        gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 1
60/2 = 30        gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 2
60/3 = 20        gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 3
60/4 = 15        gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 4
60/5 = 12        gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 5
60/6 = 10        gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 6
60/10 =       gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 10
60/12 =       gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 12
60/15 =       gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 15
60/20 =       gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 20
60/30 =       gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 30
60/60 =       gives remainder 0 and so are divisible by 60

Other Integer Numbers, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, divides with remainder, so cannot be factors of 60.

Only whole numbers and intergers can be converted to factors.

### Factors of 60 that add up to numbers

Factors of 60 that add up to 168 =1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 10 + 12 + 15 + 20 + 30 + 60

Factors of 60 that add up to 3 = 1 + 2

Factors of 60 that add up to 6 = 1 + 2 + 3

Factors of 60 that add up to 10 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4

### Factor of 60 in pairs

1 x 60, 2 x 30, 3 x 20, 4 x 15, 5 x 12, 6 x 10, 10 x 6, 12 x 5, 15 x 4, 20 x 3, 30 x 2, 60 x 1

1 and 60 are a factor pair of 60 since 1 x 60= 60

2 and 30 are a factor pair of 60 since 2 x 30= 60

3 and 20 are a factor pair of 60 since 3 x 20= 60

4 and 15 are a factor pair of 60 since 4 x 15= 60

5 and 12 are a factor pair of 60 since 5 x 12= 60

6 and 10 are a factor pair of 60 since 6 x 10= 60

10 and 6 are a factor pair of 60 since 10 x 6= 60

12 and 5 are a factor pair of 60 since 12 x 5= 60

15 and 4 are a factor pair of 60 since 15 x 4= 60

20 and 3 are a factor pair of 60 since 20 x 3= 60

30 and 2 are a factor pair of 60 since 30 x 2= 60

60 and 1 are a factor pair of 60 since 60 x 1= 60

We get factors of 60 numbers by finding numbers that can divide 60 without remainder or alternatively numbers that can multiply together to equal the target number being converted.

In considering numbers than can divide 60 without remainders. So we start with 1, then check 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, etc and 60

Getting factors is done by dividing 60 with numbers lower to it in value to find the one that will not leave remainder. Numbers that divide without remainders are the factors.

Factors are whole numbers or integers that are multiplied together to produce a given number. The integers or whole numbers multiplied are factors of the given number. If x multiplied by y = z then x and y are factors of z.

if for instance you want to find the factors of 20. You will have to find combination of numbers that when it is multiplied together will give 20. Example here is 5 and 4 because when you multiplied them, it will give you 20. so they are factors of the given number 20. Also 1 and 20, 2 and 10 are factors of 20 because 1 x 20 = 20 and 2 x 10 = 20. The factors of the given interger number 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20

To calculate factors using this tool, you will enter positive integers, because the calculator will only allow positive values, to calculate factors of a number. if you need to calculate negative numbers, you enter the positive value, get the factors and duplicate the answer yourself with all the give positive factors as negatives like as -5 and -6 as factors of number 30. On the other hand this calculator will give you both negative factors and positive integers for numbers. For instance, -2 , -3,-4 etc.

factors is like division in maths, because it gives all numbers that divide evenly into a number with no remainder. example is number 8. it is is evenly divisible by 2 and 4, which means that both 2 and 4 are factors of number 10.
