## Factoring & Multiples Worksheets

What are the Factors? Numbers that we multiply to get another name are known as factors of the answered number. Let's say that if you increase 2 and 3, the answer is 6, i.e., 2 and 3 are the factor of 6. However, factors are a concept that can be used in various other mathematical topics. Given that it is extensively part of algebra where one expression is divided by the other to find the factors. Nonetheless, it is first necessary to learn the basics of factors before moving on to the advanced level. Let us take a few examples. Find out the factors of 12. 12 can be obtained from multiplying 2 and 6, 3 and 4 and 12 and 1. So the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12. Another number is 10. 10 can be obtained by multiplying 2 and 5 and by 10 and 1. Therefore, the factors of 10 are 1, 2, 5, 10. This is a huge skill to have and the fundamental skill in algebra. I find that there is a very underwhelming presence of this topic in the Common Core Curriculum. I think it is often over looked, but the root of most algebra based work is based on roots of factors and multiples.
