# What Are The Factors Of 16

What are the factors of 16? Answer: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16

The number 16 has 5 factors(we also counted the integer itself and 1 as elements). All numbers are divisible by 1 and itself. The biggest factor of 16 is 8. The smallest factor of 16 is 2.

## What Are The Factor Pairs Of 16

All whole numbers in a factor pair have to be factors of the given number(in this case 16). When multiplying factor pairs of 16 together the result has to be equal to 16. List for factor pairs of 16:

1×16 is a factor pair of 16 because 1×16=16
2×8 is a factor pair of 16 because 2×8=16
4×4 is a factor pair of 16 because 4×4=16

We found 3 factors of 16 in pairs.

## How To Check If All Factors Of 16 Are Correct Answers

All the factors of 16 have to divide with this number without leaving a remainder to be correct. If division leaves a remainder then this means that the integer is not a factor. Now let us check all factors with this principle:

16/1=16 has a remainder of 0 which makes it divisible by the factor 1
16/2=8 has a remainder of 0 which makes it divisible by the factor 2
16/4=4 has a remainder of 0 which makes it divisible by the factor 4

After having checked all 5 components we can now safely say that they are correct answers.

## General Mathematical Properties Of Number 16

16 is a composite number. 16 is a composite number, because it has more divisors than 1 and itself. This is an even number. 16 is an even number, because it can be divided by 2 without leaving a comma spot. This also means that 16 is not an odd number. When we simplify Sin 16 degrees we get the value of sin(16)=-0.28790331666507. Simplify Cos 16 degrees. The value of cos(16)=-0.95765948032338. Simplify Tan 16 degrees. Value of tan(16)=0.3006322420239. When converting 16 in binary you get 10000. Converting decimal 16 in hexadecimal is 10. The square root of 16=4. The cube root of 16=2.5198420997897. Square root of √16 simplified is 15. All radicals are now simplified and in their simplest form. Cube root of ∛16 simplified is 2∛2. The simplified radicand no longer has any more cubed factors.

## Single Digit Properties For 16 Explained

• Integer 1 properties: 1 is an odd figure. In set theory, the 1 is constructed starting from the empty set obtaining {∅}, whose cardinality is precisely 1. It is the neutral element of multiplication and division in the sets of natural, integer, rational and real numbers. The first and second digit of the Fibonacci sequence(before 2). Second to the succession of Lucas(after 2). First element of all the successions of figured numbers. One is a part of the Tetranacci Succession. 1 is a number of: Catalan, Dudeney, Kaprekar, Wedderburn-Etherington. It is strictly non-palindrome, integer-free, first suitable digit, first issue of Ulam and the first centered square. The first term of the succession of Mian-Chowla. Complete Harshad, which is a number of Harshad in any expressed base. 1 is the first highly totest integer and also the only odd number that is not non-tottering.
• Integer 6 properties: 6 is even and a composite, with the following divisors:1, 2, 3, 6. Also called perfect number since the sum of the divisors(excluding itself) is 6. The first perfect figure, the next ones are 28 and 496. Six is highly a composed, semiprimo, congruent, scarcely total, Ulam, Wedderburn-Etherington, multi-perfect, integer-free number. Complete Harshad, which is a quantity of Harshad in any expressed base. The factorial of 3 and a semi-perfect digit. The third triangular and the first hexagonal value. All perfect even amounts are triangular and hexagonal. Six is the smallest amount different from 1 whose square (36) is triangular(the next in the line that enjoys this property is 35). Strictly a non-palindrome. A numeral is divisible by 6 if and only if it is divisible by both 2 and 3. Part of the Pythagorean triple (6, 8, 10). Being the product of the first two primes (6=2×3), it is a primitive. In the positional numbering system based on 5 it is a repeated number. An oblong, of the form n(n+1).

## Finding All Factors Of A Number

How did we find all the 5 components of 16? We simply used one of the divisibility or multiplication methods explained below.

### How to Factor A Number With Divisibility?

We want to find all of the whole numbers that your figure is divisible by. Start dividing your number one after another with all numbers that are smaller than itself(for 16 you would have to make half the amount of divisions). All numbers that leave no remainder after division are components of the integer!

This is a simple yet also a very time consuming method. Not practical to use when dealing with large numbers.

### How To Factor A Integer With Multiplication?

To find all the components of a given figure you start by multiplying with 1* (Example 1*16=16) then with 2*x, 3*x, 4*x and so on. A pair of numbers that when multiplied together equals 16 can be called the factors of 16(a factor pair of this integer).

This is also called the rainbow method, because you can write the smaller factors on the left and the bigger ones on the right side. Example:

List with all the components of 16:
1, 2, 4, 8, 16

Gradually these factors will start to close in on each other. Once the gap between big and small elements is closed and they start to meet, then you know that all elements are found.

## Tips For Finding Factors Easily

Simplify math by using these six tips for finding factors the easy way.

Tip 1: If the last digit of a bigger number is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 then this means that the whole number is an even number. If it is an even amount it is divisible by 2(making 2 a factor).

Tip 2: By multiplying the prime factors of a given number, we can find new factors.

Tip 3: If the sum of digits of a number is divisible by 3 then the figure is also divisible by 3(making 3 a factor). Example: the digits of 24 are 2 and 4 so 2+4=6 and 6 is divisible by 3, meaning that 24 is divisible by 3. The same logic also works for 9.

Tip 4: If the last two digits of a number are 00 then this integer is divisible by 4(knowing multiples of 4 comes in handy when using this). Making 4 a component.

Tip 5: If the last digit of a figure is 0 or 5 then 5 is a component of this number, because it is divisible.

Tip 6: All numbers that are divisible by both 2 and 3 are also divisible by 6. By using our third and sixth tip together you can now easily check if 6 is a factor in a big number.

## What Are Factors Of A Number?

Whole numbers that are divisible without leaving any fractional part or remainder are called factors of a number. A component of a digit is also called it's divisor.
