I want to know the equation for solving a very complicated problem. I want to know what the factors of 240 are.

There are 20 of them:

 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 240, 120, 80, 60, 48, 40, 30, 24, 20, 16 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000 00000

Thanks Hectictar :)

You can do it by looking at a factor tree

240

=2*120

=2*2*60

=2*2*2*30

=2*2*2*2*15

=2*2*2*2*3*5

So 2,3 and 5 are the prime factors of 240.

I CAN DO THIS BIT ON THE WEB2.0 CALC

factor(240) = (2^4*3)*5

Now i am going to find all of them

240=2*120

240=3*80

240=4*60

240=5*48

240=6*40

240=8*30

240=10*24

240=12*20

240=15*16

There is not going to be any more factors becaseu there are no whole numbers between 15 and 16.

I have only just realised that this is identical to what Hectictar did. Sorry Hectictar ://
