What are the factors of 50? Well, it is a difficult question to answer. Let’s try and break it down into smaller parts. The first part is what are the factors of 5? There are 4: 1, 2, 3, and 5. And what about 10? There are also four: 1, 2, 5 and 10. Now let’s take one more step back what does 50 equal to when compared with 100? It equals half! So that means there must be five factors of fifty which would be 25 or 20 or 16 or 12…

What are the factors of 50? Well, it is a difficult question to answer. Let’s try and break it down into smaller parts. The first part is what are the factors of 49? There are four: 25 or 20 or 16 or 12… And what about 100? There are also four: 25 or 20 or 16 or 12–but notice that there is only one factor for both these numbers, which means 26 cannot be an additional factor because they would have two different values when compared with 500 (26/500 = .05 vs _____). So now we know that there must be five factors of fifty which would be 25 and so on!

## Now you should be able to easily calculate other numbers’ prime factors as well.

What are the factors of 400? There are four: 25, 20, 16 and 12. And what about 500? There are also four: 25 or 20 or 16 or 12 but notice that there is only one factor for both these numbers which means 26 cannot be an additional factor because they would have two different values when compared with 4900 (26/4900 = .05 vs _____). So now we know that there must be five factors of 500 which would be 25 and so on! Now you should be able to easily calculate other numbers’ prime factors as well.

A special note… If your calculator has a “sqrt” button it can find some square roots for you too. Just use this button to find the square root of a number (such as 26).

What are the factors of 100? There is one factor for each digit: 11, 12. So what about 200? Again there’s just one per digit: 22 or 23. If you have a calculator that can find square roots then it will also be able to tell you what the prime numbers are! Remember, however, that we’re only looking at whole numbers so when using this technique don’t forget fractions like .25 in your calculations if they come up.

What else do I need to know about 50? Well… How does 60 divide into it evenly with no remainder left over and how many times does 30 go into 400? They both divide five times.

What are the factors of 50? There is one factor for each digit: 11, 12. So what about 500? Again there’s just one per digit: 52 or 53.

Remember, however, that we’re only looking at whole numbers so when using this technique don’t forget fractions like .25 in your calculations if they come up.

There may not always be an answer when asking how many times a number goes into another number evenly with no remainder left over but hopefully some of these examples help illustrate why and maybe give you ideas on other questions to explore too! And remember there are more kinds of math than just what we can do with numbers and that’s why there are a lot of different kinds so don’t let the name “math” stop you from exploring!

## What are the Factors of 50?

The factors of fifty are {25, 12.500}. We get these numbers by dividing evenly into it and seeing what remains. For example: 25 is a factor because when we divide it in half so that we can see how many times five goes into fifty, there’s one left over; then if you add another two halves together to find out how much ten goes into fifty–there’s not enough! That means twelve isn’t a factor either since three doesn’t go evenly with twenty-five). So what about 12.500? When divided in half twice (to look for how many sixes will fit), there’s no remainder left over after both calculations which tells us that twelve point five is indeed a factor of fifty.
