**Positive Factors of 12:
**1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12

**Negative Factors of 12**: -1,
-2, -3, -4, -6, and -12.

**Prime Factors of 12: **2 X 2
X 3

Pairs of numbers that give 12 as their product 1 into 12 is
equal to 12, 2
into 6 is equal to 12, 3 into 4 is equal to 12,

so we get 3 pairs of
numbers that give us the product 12 no other pair of numbers when multiplied
will give the product 12.

Now let us take each
pair of number separately and understand what it means let us take the first
pair 1 into 12 is equal to 12 here when we divide 12 by 1 we get the quotient
as 12 and when we divide 12 by 12 we get the quotient as 1 in both the cases the remainder is 0 thus it means that 12 is divisible by 1 and 12 pair to 2 into 6
is equal to 12 here when we divide 12 by 2 we get the quotient as 6 and if we
divide 12 by 6 we get the quotient as 2 in both cases the remainder is 0.

**Also, Read Factors of 10**

Thus it means that 12
is divisible by 2 and 6 pair 3, 3 into 4 is equal to 12 here if we divide 12
by 3 we get the quotient as 4 and if we divide 12 by 4 we get the quotient as 3
here also we get the remainder as 0 in both the divisions thus it means that 12
is divisible by 3 and 4 thus we now understand that 12 is divisible by 1 2 3 4
6 and 12 hence we see that the numbers 1 2 3 4 6 and 12 are the factors of 12.

Hence we can define
factor of a number as a number that exactly divides the given number or we can
see that factors are numbers you can multiply together to get a given number.

now let us look at
certain points which we need to understand related to a factor with the help of
some examples point 1 1 is a factor of every number look at the examples 1 into
6 is equal to 6 8 divided by 1 is equal to 8 thus 1 multiplied by any number
gives the number itself as the product and any number divided by 1 also gives
the number itself as the quotient.
