 We have all the information you will ever need about the Factors of 24. We will provide you with the definition of Factors of 24, show you how to find the Factors of 24, give you all the Factors of 24, tell you how many Factors 24 has, and supply you with all the Factor Pairs of 24 to prove that our answer is solved correctly.

Factors of 24 definition
The Factors of 24 are all the integers (positive and negative whole numbers) that you can evenly divide into 24. 24 divided by a Factor of 24 will equal another Factor of 24.

How to find the Factors of 24
Since the Factors of 24 are all the numbers that you can evenly divide into 24, we simply need to divide 24 by all numbers up to 24 to see which ones result in an even quotient. When we did that, we found that these calculations resulted in an even quotient:

24 ÷ 1 = 24
24 ÷ 2 = 12
24 ÷ 3 = 8
24 ÷ 4 = 6
24 ÷ 6 = 4
24 ÷ 8 = 3
24 ÷ 12 = 2
24 ÷ 24 = 1

The Postive Factors of 24 are therefore all the numbers we used to divide (divisors) above to get an even number. Here is the list of all Postive Factors of 24 in numerical order:

1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24.

Factors of 24 include negative numbers. Therefore, all the Positive Factors of 24 can be converted to negative numbers. The list of Negative Factors of 24 are:

-1, -2, -3, -4, -6, -8, -12, and -24.

How many Factors of 24?
When we counted the Factors of 24 that we listed above, we found that 24 has 8 Positive Factors and 8 Negative Factors. Thus, the total number of Factors of 24 is 16.

Factor Pairs of 24
Factor Pairs of 24 are combinations of two factors that when multiplied together equal 24. Here are all the Positive Factor Pairs of 24

1 × 24 = 24
2 × 12 = 24
3 × 8 = 24
4 × 6 = 24
6 × 4 = 24
8 × 3 = 24
12 × 2 = 24
24 × 1 = 24

Like we said above, Factors of 24 include negative numbers. Minus times minus equals plus, thus you can convert the Positive Factor Pair list above by simply putting a minus in front of every factor to get all the Negative Factor Pairs of 24:

-1 × -24 = 24
-2 × -12 = 24
-3 × -8 = 24
-4 × -6 = 24
-6 × -4 = 24
-8 × -3 = 24
-12 × -2 = 24
-24 × -1 = 24
