finding factors of the numbers is actually something that we
use quite a bit when we add fractions together and when we subtract them when
we multiply them will constantly be meddling with these fractions and trying to
use these factors to make them simpler or change them.

A factor is a number
that divides evenly into another number so literally, it's a number that
divides evenly into another number.

## How to Calculate Factors of 10

10/1 = 10

10/2 = 5

10/5 = 2

10/10 = 1

Therefore
the positive Factors of 10 are

1, 2, 5,
and 10.

Factors of
10 also include Negative numbers

-1, -2, -5,
and -10.

We have 4
Positive and 4 Negative numbers and thus we have total 8 numbers of Factors of
10.

Find the factors of the number 10 is I'm literally trying to
write down a list of every number I can think of that will divide evenly into
10 you know without any remainder or any leftover so it has to divide evenly
and if a number can divide evenly into the number 10 then we say it's a factor
of the number 10.

So let's go start
with the number 1 and see how far we can go so is the number 1 a factor of 10
yes the answer is one is a factor of ten because one can be divided into ten
evenly in fact ten divided by one is ten so it can be divided in there now
let's ask yourself the question is two a factor of ten can it be divided into
ten yes it can because 10 divided by 2 is 5 so that can be divided evenly is 3
a factor of 10 well here we hit a roadblock because 3 cannot be divided into 10
evenly because 3 times 3 is 9 and 3 times 4 is 12 so we don't have any way that
the number 3 can be divided in there an even number of times without anything
leftover so 3 is not a factor of 10 so then we go to the number 4 is 4 a factor
of 10 and four is not a factor of 10 either because 4 times 1 is 4 4 times 2 is
8 and 4 times 3 is 12.

There's no way that I
can divide 4 into 10 an even number of times with nothing left over so the
number four is not a factor but the number 5 is a factor of 10 because 5 can be
divided into 10 and even number of times in fact 10 divided by 5 gives you 2 so
that's a nice number now they can just keep going on can 6 be divided into 10
no can 7 be divided into 10 no can 8 be divided into 10 no can 9 be divided
into 10 no can 10 be divided into 10 actually 10 can be divided into 10 because
10 divided by 10 is just 1 so what we have here is a list of what we call
factors so in this case the factors of the number 10 are 1 2 5 and 10.

These are
all numbers that can be divided evenly into the number 10 with nothing left
over there are no other numbers in the universe that can be divided into 10 an
even number of times so I know that it doesn't you may not understand why this
is important right now but when we get into simplifying fractions and doing
other things finding the factors of the number is going to be very very
important so just make sure you have the concept down and now that we've done
one example we can read the definition and understand a factor is a number that
divides evenly into other numbers.
