**Factors of 24 **refer to the numbers that can exactly divide 24 leaving the remainder 0. The best way to find the factors of any number is through division. Using this method you will be able to easily find the Prime Factorisation/Factors of 24 in pairs as well.

In this article, we will provide you with all the details on 24 factors along with some sample questions that will aid you in your preparation.

## Factors Of 24

The numbers by which 24 is divisible are its factors. So without any delay let us provide you with factors of 24.

** Division Method**

In this method, you must check if 24 is divisible by a number or not starting. If the division leaves the remainder 0 then it is a factor else not. We have listed the factors below you can try the division method by yourself.

- 1
- 2
- 3
- 4
- 6
- 8
- 9
- 12
- 24

**Factor Pairs Of 24**

There might be instances where a question may be framed asking the factor pairs. If such a situation arrives then don’t think that it is out of the syllabus or things like that just remember the division method and you will get the factor pairs.

24 = 1 x 24 24 = 2 x 12 24 = 3 x 8 24 = 4 x 6 |

**Prime Factorisation**

Here we break down a number into a set of Prime Numbers, which when multiplied back gives the original number.

Steps | Lowest Prime Factor With Which The Number Is Divisible | Quotient |

1st Step: 24 ÷ 2 | 2 | 12 |

2nd Step: 12 ÷ 2 | 2 | 6 |

3rd Step: 6 ÷ 2 | 2 | 3 (Cannot be broken down further as 3 is a Prime Number) |

We can write 24 as,

**24 = 2 x 12 => 2 x 4 x 3 => 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 => 2**^{3}** x 3. **
