What are the factors of 16?

See explanation.

To find all factors of a number you have to check if a number is divisible by starting from the lowest (2).

##16## is an even number, so you can start by dividing by ##2##. ##16-:2=8##

##8## is also even, so you can repeat the procedure:

##8-:2=4## ##4-:2=2## ##2-:2=1##

So we can write that ##16=2^4##.

Therfore the factors of ##16## are: ##1,2,4,8## and ##16##.
