# Factor of 48 - Prime Factor of 48

Hello everyone, today in this article, we will be learning how to find the factors and prime factors of 48.

Hello everyone, today in this article, we will be learning how to find the factors and prime factors of 48. We will be making the factor tree for 48 and see the prime factors, and for finding the factors, we will be using the division method where we divide 48 by different numbers and check whether it is fully divisible by that number or not if it is fully separable that means the number is a factor of 48 so let's start dividing 48.

48 ÷ 1 = 48
48 ÷ 2 = 24
48 ÷ 3 = 16
48 ÷ 4 = 12
48 ÷ 6 = 8
48 ÷ 8 = 6
48 ÷ 12= 4
48 ÷ 16 = 3
48 ÷ 24 = 2
48 ÷ 48 = 1

So the factors of 48 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24 and 48

For making a factor tree, we are going to write the number 48, and we'll write 48 as the product of any of the two factors here. Let's take 2 and 24, so two times 24 is 48 as 2 is a prime number, so we are going to circle 2 and 24 can be written as the product of 2 times 12 and 2 is a prime number, so we are going to circle 2 12 can be written as the product of two numbers like two times 6 and 2 is a prime number, so we are going to circle two. The next 6 can be written as a product of 2 and 3. Both 2 and 3 are prime numbers, so we will circle 2 and 3. So now all the circled numbers are the prime factors of number 48.

So let's write the prime factors of 48 as 2, 2, 2, 2, and 3.

These are all the prime factors of 48 by using these methods, you can find the factors and prime factors of any number.
