The factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36.

Here is how you calculate the factors of 36. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 36 = 36, so put these into our factor list.
    1...36

  2. Take 2. 2 x 18 = 36, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...1836

  3. Now take 3. 3 x 12 = 36, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123...121836

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 9 = 36, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234...9121836

  5. Now try 5... nope! 36/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6. 6 x 6 = 36, so we add it to our list of factors. There are no numbers between 6 and itself, so we can stop.
