The factors of 144 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 12, 16, 18, 24, 36, 48, 72, 144.

Getting 144's factors is done like this. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 144 = 144, so put these into our factor list.
    1...144

  2. Take 2. 2 x 72 = 144, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...72144

  3. Now take 3. 3 x 48 = 144, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123...4872144

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 36 = 144, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234...364872144

  5. Now try 5... nope! 144/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6. 6 x 24 = 144, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12346...24364872144

  7. Take 7... no. 144/7 isn't a whole number. So we skip 7.

  8. Now take 8. 8 x 18 = 144, so we add these to our list of factors.
    123468...1824364872144

  9. Next try 9. 9 x 16 = 144, so put these into our factor list.
    1234689...161824364872144

  10. Now try 10... no good. 144/10 isn't a whole number. So we skip 10.

  11. Try 11... no. 144/11 isn't a whole number. So we skip 11.

  12. Take 12. 12 x 12 = 144, so we add it to our list of factors. There are no numbers between 12 and itself, so we can stop.
