What Are the Factors of 32?

The factors of 32 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32.

The way to calculate the factors of 32 is as follows. Take 32 and the number 1. Those are the first two factors.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 32 = 32, so put these into our factor list.
    1...32

  2. Take 2. 2 x 16 = 32, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...1632

  3. Now take 3... no. 32/3 isn't a whole number. So we skip 3.

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 8 = 32, so we add these to our list of factors.
    124...81632

  5. Now try 5... nope! 32/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6... no good. 32/6 isn't a whole number. So we skip 6.

  7. Now, since we don't have any more numbers to try, we're done!
