 A: 1, 2, 4, 8, 19, 38, 76, 152, 3391, 6782, 13564, 27128, 64429, 128858, 257716, 515432

How do I find the factors or divisors of the number 515,432?

Unfortunately, there's not simple formula to identifying all of the factors of a number and it can be a tedious process when trying to identify the factors of larger numbers. To find the factors of the number 515,432, it is easiest to start from the outside in. Here's what we mean:

Outside in Factoring

We start by creating a table and writing 1 on the left side and then the number we're trying to find the factors for on the right side in a table.

1 515,432

Next, we take the number 515,432 and divide it by 2.

In this case, 2 ÷ 515,432 = 257,716

If the quotient is a whole number, then 2 and 257,716 are factors. Write them in the table below. If the quotient is not a whole number, skip to the next test.

1 2 257,716 515,432

Now, we try dividing 515,432 by 3.

515,432 ÷ 3 = 171,810.6667

If the quotient is a whole number, then 3 and 171,810.6667 are factors. Write them in the table below. If the quotient is not a whole number, skip to the next test.

Here is what our table should look like at this step:

1 2 257,716 515,432

Let's try dividing by 4.

515,432 ÷ 4 = 128,858

If the quotient is a whole number, then 4 and 128,858 are factors. Write them in the table below. If the quotient is not a whole number, skip to the next test.

Here is what our table should look like at this step:

1 2 4 128,858 257,716 515,432

We keep dividing by the next largest number, in this case the number 5. If the quotient of 5 ÷ 515,432 is a whole number, then 5 and your quotient are factors of the number.


Keep dividing by the next highest number until you cannot divide anymore.


What you will end up with is this table:

12481938761523,3916,78213,56427,12864,429128,858257,716515,432

All of the numbers in the table above can be evenly divided into the number 515,432.
