What Are the Factors of 168?

The factors of 168 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, 21, 24, 28, 42, 56, 84, 168.

This is how to find the factors of 168. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 168 = 168, so put these into our factor list.
    1...168

  2. Take 2. 2 x 84 = 168, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...84168

  3. Now take 3. 3 x 56 = 168, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123...5684168

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 42 = 168, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234...425684168

  5. Now try 5... nope! 168/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6. 6 x 28 = 168, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12346...28425684168

  7. Take 7. 7 x 24 = 168, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123467...2428425684168

  8. Now take 8. 8 x 21 = 168, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234678...212428425684168

  9. Next try 9... nope! 168/9 isn't a whole number. So we skip 9.

  10. Now try 10... no good. 168/10 isn't a whole number. So we skip 10.

  11. Try 11... no. 168/11 isn't a whole number. So we skip 11.

  12. Take 12. 12 x 14 = 168, so we add these to our list of factors.
    123467812...14212428425684168

  13. Now take 13... nope! 168/13 isn't a whole number. So we skip 13.

  14. Now, since we don't have any more numbers to try, we're done!
