# Q: What are the factors or divisors of the number 542,160?

## How do I find the factors or divisors of the number 542,160?

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 542,160, 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.

 1 542,160

Next, we take the number 542,160 and divide it by 2.

In this case, 2 ÷ 542,160 = 271,080

If the quotient is a whole number, then 2 and 271,080 are factors. Write them in the table below. If the quotient is not a whole number, skip to the next test.

 1 2 271,080 542,160

Now, we try dividing 542,160 by 3.

542,160 ÷ 3 = 180,720

If the quotient is a whole number, then 3 and 180,720 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 3 180,720 271,080 542,160

Let's try dividing by 4.

542,160 ÷ 4 = 135,540

If the quotient is a whole number, then 4 and 135,540 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 3 4 135,540 180,720 271,080 542,160

We keep dividing by the next largest number, in this case the number 5. If the quotient of 5 ÷ 542,160 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:

 1 2 3 4 5 6 8 9 10 12 15 16 18 20 24 27 30 36 40 45 48 54 60 72 80 90 108 120 135 144 180 216 240 251 270 360 432 502 540 720 753 1,004 1,080 1,255 1,506 2,008 2,160 2,259 2,510 3,012 3,765 4,016 4,518 5,020 6,024 6,777 7,530 9,036 10,040 11,295 12,048 13,554 15,060 18,072 20,080 22,590 27,108 30,120 33,885 36,144 45,180 54,216 60,240 67,770 90,360 108,432 135,540 180,720 271,080 542,160

All of the numbers in the table above can be evenly divided into the number 542,160.
