Observe the factors of 16, we provide you Positive factors of 16, we provide you Negative factors of 16, we calculate prime factors of 16.

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.

All the Positive and Negative Numbers that can divide into 16 The numbers that can divide 16 without remainder are called 16.

## How to Calculate the Factors of 16

Let’s find the
Factors of 16

**16 ÷ 1= 16**

**16 ÷ 2 = 8**

**16 ÷ 4 = 4**

**16 ÷ 8 = 2**

**16 ÷ 16 = 1**

1, 2, 4, 8, and
16 are the Positive factors of 16 whereas -1, -2, -4, -8, and -16 are the
Negative Factors of 16.

### Factor Pairs of 16

When we
multiplied two factors and result will be 16 then we can say Factors pairs of 16.

**1 X 16
= 16**

**2 X 8
= 16**

**4 X 4
= 16**

** 8 X 2 = 16**

**16 X 1
= 16**

When we put
minus in front of every factor we get Negative Factor pairs of 16.

**-1 X- 16
= 16**

**-2 X
-8 = 16**

**-4 X
-4 = 16**

**-8 X -
2 = 16**

**-16 X
-1 = 16**

When we add Factors of 16 we get result of 31

**Prime Factorization of 16= 2 X
2 X 4 = 16**

We need to find
all the factors of 16. To do that, all we have to do is write 16 as all
possible products of two numbers. We can start off with the number 1. 16 can be
written as 1 multiplied by 16. This is the simplest and the most obvious
combination. One is always a factor of all numbers. Then we move on to 2. Is 16
divisible by 2? Yes and the product can be written as 2 multiplied by 8. . Is
16 divisible by 3 ? No it isn't, so we cannot write a product with 3 as one of
the numbers.

**Also Check**: Factors of 45

Is 16 divisible
by 4? Yes, the product can be written as 4 multiplied by 4. Is 16 divisible by
6? No it isn't, so we cannot write a product with 6 as one of the numbers. What
about 8? Yes, 16 is divisible by 8.

And the product
can be written as 8 multiplied
by 2.
