Factors are numbers that multiply together to give another number. You can also say that a number can be divided evenly by its factors.
If the factors of a number can also be factored, then the number can be divided by those smaller factors as well. For example, 6 is a factor of 30. 6 is 2 times 3, so that means 2 and 3 are also factors of 30. You can divide 30 by 2, by 3 and by 6 to find other factors as wel
