We are continuing our series of posts about factors to help you grasp this mathematical concept and its intricacies. In this blog, we’ll focus on computing the factors of 8.

The exploration of factors will encompass the following established methods:

1. Prime Factorization
2. Factor Tree Method

### What Are the Factors of 8?

The factors of 8 are whole numbers, resulting in a product of 8 when multiplied.

In simpler terms, these numbers can be evenly divided by 8 without leaving any left over.

Factors of 8
1, 2, 4 and 8

Recognizing these factors is essential as it simplifies mathematical calculations involving the number 8.

### How to Determine the Factors of 8?

Finding the factors of 8 is straightforward using the following essential techniques:

#### 1. Prime Factorization Method

Prime Factorization method involves breaking down a number into prime numbers, which are numbers divisible only by 1 and themselves.

Divide 8 by 2: 8 ÷ 2 = 4

Divide 4 by 2: 4 ÷ 2 = 2

Divide 2 by 2: 2 ÷ 2 = 1

Step 2: Write Down the Prime Factorization The prime factorization of 8 is expressed as

8 = 2 × 2 × 2

Step 3: List Down the Factors Factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4, and 8.

#### 2. Factor Tree Method

A Factor Tree visually illustrates the breakdown of a number into its prime factors. Please start with the given number, and divide it until you reach prime numbers, forming branches resembling a tree.

Step 1: Begin with 8 and select 2 as a factor:

8

/ \

2       4

Step 2: Divide 4 by 2:

8

/ \

2 4

\

2

From this tree, the prime factorization of 8 becomes apparent: 2 × 2 × 2.

Factors of 8
1, 2, 4 and 8

### Summary

This guide has equipped you with the knowledge to adeptly determine the factors of 8 using the twin techniques of prime factorization and factor trees. Whether you’re an educator, student, or simply interested in mathematics, these strategies will enhance your mathematical understanding and skills.
