# Factoring Calculator

Every number is a multiple of other smaller numbers. For example 8 can be written as 4x2. So, factorization or factorisation is the decomposition a number in to product of other smaller numbers.

### Example

#### Factors of a Number

Find the factors of a number 12

12 = 2 * 6

= 2 * (3 *2)

= 2 * 2 * 3

Prime factors are 2, 3.

The basic factors are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12

Also the same numbers can also be derived as multiples of prime numbers.

8 = 2x2x2

10 = 2x5

Such a factorization is called prime factorization.
