What Are the Factors of 120?

The factors of 120 are calculated like this:

Calcating the factors of 120 is straightforward. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 120 = 120, so put these into our factor list.
    1...120

  2. Take 2. 2 x 60 = 120, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...60120

  3. Now take 3. 3 x 40 = 120, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123...4060120

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 30 = 120, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234...304060120

  5. Now try 5. 5 x 24 = 120, so put these into our factor list.
    12345...24304060120

  6. Try 6. 6 x 20 = 120, which means we add these to our factor list.
    123456...2024304060120

  7. Take 7... no. 120/7 isn't a whole number. So we skip 7.

  8. Now take 8. 8 x 15 = 120, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234568...152024304060120

  9. Next try 9... nope! 120/9 isn't a whole number. So we skip 9.

  10. Now try 10. 10 x 12 = 120, which means we add these to our factor list.
    123456810...12152024304060120

  11. Try 11... no. 120/11 isn't a whole number. So we skip 11.

  12. Now, since we don't have any more numbers to try, we're done!
