list all the factors of 48 using an approprate strategy

  • Math -

    one strategy is to find small factors, divide them out, and factor the quotients

    e.g, 48 = 2*24
    24 * 2*12
    12 * 2*6
    6 = 2*3
    so, the factors of 48 are 2,2,2,2,3

    Now use them in combinations to get
    2,4,8,16
    3,6,12,24
