do you mean " what does all even numbers have as factors?"? then the number two.

No. Perfect square numbers have an odd number of factors.

The factors of all numbers can be written in pairs. With square numbers, one of those pairs is the same number twice. When listed singly, square numbers have an odd number of factors. All others are even.

All even numbers.

No. For example, 30 is an even number but two of its factors are odd; 5 and 15.

Every number except the number 1 has at least two factors, 1 and the number itself. Prime numbers have exactly two factors and composite numbers have more than two factors. All even numbers except the number 2 are composite numbers and have more than two factors. The number 2 is prime and its only factors are 1 and 2.

All prime numbers are not odd numbers. 2 is an even prime number, and it is the only even prime number because all other even numbers have 2 as one of their factors.

Square numbers have an odd number of factors, all others have an even number. In this context, primes can either be considered as having 0 factors (an even number) or 2 factors - 1 and itself, again, an even number.

In mathematics, all nonzero numbers have factors. Some factors are even numbers, some are odd. An even factor is a factor that is an even number.

In mathematics, all nonzero numbers have factors. Some factors are even numbers, some are odd. An even factor is a factor that is an even number.

Every one of them has an even number of factors.

Not all prime numbers are odd. There is one prime number that is even: 2. A prime number is a number with two and only two factors: 1 (also known as unity) and itself. A composite number is a number with more than two factors. All even numbers are divisible by 2. Thus, all even numbers have 2 as a factor, which means that all even numbers greater than 2 have more than two factors, so they cannot be prime numbers.

All of them.

1 and 2

Not all even numbers are composite. Take 2 for example; its an even number but it only has 2 factors; 1 and itself.

There are square numbers (numbers which are a square of an integer), such as 4. It's factors, listed are 1, 2, and 4. All square numbers have an odd number of factors. Then there's 1, which has only 1 factor: 1. All other numbers have an even number of factors. Prime numbers will have only 2 factors (2 is even).

All nonzero numbers have factors. Some factors are even numbers, some factors are odd numbers.

Almost all prime numbers are odd. There is only one prime number that is even - the number 2. A prime number is a number with two and only two factors: 1 and itself. All even numbers greater than 2 are divisible by 2, which means they have more than two factors, so they cannot be prime numbers.All prime numbers except 2 are odd.

All numbers can be broken down into factor pairs. No matter how many pairs there are, it's an even number of factors. Squares have a factor pair that consists of the same number twice. When you list them, you list the number once.

All even numbers are composite numbers except 2 which is the only even prime number because it has only two factors which are itself and one.

Square numbers have an odd number of factors. All others are even.

All other even numbers have more than two factors.

it is the integers of even numbers which divide all the even numbers

When you multiply numbers together, the factors of the product are the factors of all of the multiplicands, and every even number includes at least one factor of 2.

2 is the only even prime number. All other even numbers have more than two factors.
