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

Getting 84's factors is done like this. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 84 = 84, so put these into our factor list.
    1...84

  2. Take 2. 2 x 42 = 84, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...4284

  3. Now take 3. 3 x 28 = 84, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123...284284

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 21 = 84, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234...21284284

  5. Now try 5... nope! 84/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6. 6 x 14 = 84, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12346...1421284284

  7. Take 7. 7 x 12 = 84, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123467...121421284284

  8. Now take 8... no luck. 84/8 isn't a whole number. So we skip 8.

  9. Next try 9... nope! 84/9 isn't a whole number. So we skip 9.

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