Divide the number 32 by successive prime numbers to get the factors until you cant divide any more numbers...

32/1=32 (factors are 1 and 32)

32/2=16 (factors are 2 and 16)

32/3=does not divide to be a whole number

32/4=8 (factors are 4 and 8)

32/5=does not divide to be a whole number

32/6=does not divide to be a whole number

32/7=does not divide to be a whole number

Now you done with all the numbers you can. Therefore 1,32,2,16,4 and 8 are factors.
