##### What is

## Factor Calculator?

Our Factor Calculator is a tool created to assist you in exploring the factors, factor pairs and prime factors of any given number. Whether you're a student delving, into mathematics or just curious about numbers properties this tool offers a way to analyze the factors of a value.

Using a factor calculator helps identify the numbers that can be multiplied together to result in the given number. For instance the factors of 12 include 1, 2 3 4 6 and 12 because these numbers can be paired up and multiplied to yield 12 (1 * 12 2 * 6, 3 * 4). Typically this factor calculator requires inputting a number and then proceeds to compute and exhibit its factors. Such calculations can prove beneficial, in math problems and tasks requiring thinking. The results are showcased in a manner showing factors, factor pairs and prime factors step by step.

##### How

## Factor Calculator Works❓

Using the Factor Calculator is simple. Enter any positive integer into the input field provided, then either click the 'Calculate' button or press Enter. The calculator will then process the input number and display its factors, factor pairs, and prime factors in an organized manner. For example, if you enter the number 12, the answer should be displayed in the format shown in the image below. You will get factors, factor pairs, and prime factors presented in steps.

## How to Factorization Work?

Factorization is the process of breaking down a number into its factors. The factors calculator utilizes trial division to achieve this. Follow these steps to use trial division to find the factors of a number:

##### Find the Square Root

Start by finding the square root of the integer number n and round down to the closest whole number. Let's denote this number as s

##### Begin with 1

Start with the number 1 and find the corresponding factor pair: n÷1=n. Thus, 1 and n are a factor pair because division results in a whole number with zero remainder.

##### Test Integers

Proceed to test all integers from 2 up to s (inclusive) using trial division. For each integer i within this range: Calculate n÷i. If the division results in a whole number with zero remainder, record the factor pair (i,n÷i).

##### Complete Factorization

Continue testing until reaching n÷s. Once all factor pairs have been recorded, the factorization of the number n is complete.

##### What

## You Can Calculate❓

With the Factor Calculator, you can quickly find the factors of a number, which are the whole numbers that divide evenly into the input value. Additionally, the calculator displays the factor pairs, showing pairs of numbers that multiply together to yield the input number. Lastly, it identifies the prime factors, which are the factors that are prime numbers.

## Other Functionality✔️

To enhance user experience, the Factor Calculator includes a responsive design, ensuring compatibility across various devices and screen sizes. Additionally, it allows users to input numbers using either the mouse or keyboard, providing flexibility and convenience.

## Example

For example, if you input the number 12 into the calculator, it will display that the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. It will also show the factor pairs as (1, 12), (2, 6), and (3, 4), along with the prime factors, which are 2 and 3.
