The factors of a number are the whole numbers that divide evenly into that number without leaving a remainder. In the case of the number 32, the factors are the numbers that can divide 32 without a remainder.

The factors of 32 are: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32.

To determine if a number is a factor of 32, you divide 32 by that number and check if the division result is a whole number (i.e., no remainder). If there is no remainder, then the number is a factor of 32.

For example:

- 32 ÷ 1 = 32 (no remainder)
- 32 ÷ 2 = 16 (no remainder)
- 32 ÷ 4 = 8 (no remainder)
- 32 ÷ 8 = 4 (no remainder)
- 32 ÷ 16 = 2 (no remainder)
- 32 ÷ 32 = 1 (no remainder)

Therefore, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32 are all factors of 32.

## How many Factors of 32

#### Factor Pairs of 32

The factor pairs of 32 are the pairs of numbers that, when multiplied together, result in 32. These pairs are:

1 × 32 = 32

2 × 16 = 32

4 × 8 = 32

Therefore, the factor pairs of 32 are:

(1, 32), (2, 16), and (4, 8).

#### All Factors of 32 using Multiplication

To find all the factors of 32 using multiplication, we can start with 1 and multiply it by successively larger numbers until we reach 32. The pairs of numbers formed through multiplication will give us all the factors of 32. The factor pairs of 32 are:

1 × 32 = 32

2 × 16 = 32

4 × 8 = 32

Therefore, the factors of 32 obtained through multiplication are:

1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32.
