### What are the steps in finding the factors of any number given?

Divisibility is done many ways. Because of the way you asked the question I would say, "Divide by each number 1, 2, 3, so forth and if you get a remainder then it is not a factor. You may stop when you are at the square root of the number. Another way is to divide only by prime numbers and use those that have no remainder as factors of other factors.

### How can fractions be simplified by finding the GCF and using divisibility rules?

Simplifying fractions and finding the GCF is easy. All you have to do is put the fraction into simplest form and then put in a whole number.

### How is prime factorization different from finding factors of a number?

All numbers have factors. Some factors are prime numbers, some are composite numbers, one is neither. When finding the factors of a number, you find all the factors. The prime factorization is a multiplication string of just prime factors that will total the given number.

Factors are numbers we can multiply together to get another number: Example: 2 and 3 are factors of 6, because 2 &Atilde;&mdash; 3 = 6. A number can have MANY factors!So, an easy way of finding your answers is to look at a timetable charts and analyze what equals to 2,4 and #5.

### Would you rather find all the factors of a number or find all the prime factors of a number?

Once all the prime factors of a number have been found, the number of factors the number has and what they are can be found. I'd be finding the prime factors first before finding all the factors of a number, so I'd rather find all the prime factors as it means I can stop before I have to do more work in finding all the factors.
