The factors of 168 are calculated like this:

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!
