What are all the factor pairs of 32?

1, 32 2, 16 4, 8

Assumption: Looking for whole number factors.

If you include fractional or decimal factors then there are infinitely many factors.

One way is to use a factor tree and then use that to build up different combinations.

From this we observe that we have the following:

##[1]xx[32] -> 1,32##

##[2]xx[2xx2xx2xx2] -> 2, 16##

##[2xx2]xx[2xx2xx2]-> 4,8##

##[2xx2xx2]xx[2xx2]-> 8,4 ” “larr “repeated pair”##

##[2xx2xx2xx2]xx[2]->16,2″ “larr “repeated pair”##

##[32]xx[1] -> 32,1″ “larr “repeated pair”##
