How do you Find Factors of a Number Quickly?

The factors of a number are integers when multiplied together to derive the original number itself. To find the factors of a number quickly follow the steps given below:

Step 1: Use the prime factorization method to split the prime factors of the number

Step 2: After deriving the prime numbers, take the exponents of all the prime numbers and add 1 to each exponent. 

Step 3: After taking the sum, multiply the exponents together. 

For example:

Consider the number 48. After the prime-factorization method, the prime factors that are derived are 2^4 x 3^1. After adding 1 to the exponents, the modified exponents are 5 and 2. 

Now we multiply 5 and 2.

5×2=10.

Therefore 48 has 10 factors.
