Factors of 30 are numbers, which when multiplied together in pairs of two gives the result 30. We can also say that a factor is a number that divides a number completely, leaving zero as a remainder. To find the factors of 30, we will use the multiplication method here.

**Factors Definition:** Factors are the numbers you multiply together to get another number.

Ex: 5 x 6 = 30

5, 6 are a Factors of 30.

## What are the factors of 30?

The way to find the factors of 30 is as follows:

The method of calculating the factors of 30 is as follows. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.

**| Step 1 |** 1 x 30 = 30, So put them in your factor list.

1, …………. 30

**| Step 2 |** 2 x 15 = 30, Which means we will add them to our factor list.

1, 2 ………… 15, 30

**| Step 3 |** 3 x 10 = 30 not being completely divided. So we will not write 3 on the list.

1, 2, 3………..10, 15, 30

**| Step 4 |** 30 ÷ 4 is not being completely divided. So we will not write 4 in the list

**|Step 5 |** 5 x 6 = 30, Which means we will add them to our factor list.

1, 2, 3, 5 ……….6, 10, 15, 30

**| Step 6 |** Since we don’t have any more numbers to calculate, we are putting the numbers so far.

1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30

**So 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15 and 30 are factors of 30.**

### Factors of (- 30)

And also -1, – 2, – 3, – 5, – 6, – 10, – 15 and – 30, because you get a positive number by multiplying two negatives, like (- 2) × (- 15) = 30.

### List the factors of 30 – All the factors of 30

Here is a list of all the positive and negative factors of 30 in numerical order.

1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30, -1, – 2, – 3, – 5, – 6, – 10, – 15 and – 30

### What are the factor pairs for 30?

1 x 30 = 30

2 x 15 = 30

3 x 10 = 30

5 x 6 = 30

So (1, 30), (2, 15), (3, 10), (5, 6) are Pairs factors of 30.

### What is the prime factorization of 30?

30 ÷ 2 = 15

15 ÷ 3 = 5

5 ÷ 5 = 1

So 2 x 3 x 5 are **Prime factors of 30**.
