A Factor is a number that divides in to another number leaving no remainder.

Factors of 56

When doing factors try to do them in pairs, for example if you think 2 is a factor say to yourself ''what times 2 to give 56'', it is 28 so you can write 2 and 28 as a factor pair. Try to also start from 1 times table and work your way up so you do not miss any factors out.

So Factors of 56 are:

1, 56

2, 28

4, 14

7, 8
