00:00:01.220 --> 00:00:06.090
Which two of these numbers are factors of 46?
00:00:08.090 --> 00:00:12.070
First, we should ask the question, what is a factor?
00:00:13.790 --> 00:00:18.870
Factors are numbers we’re multiplying together to get another number.
00:00:20.950 --> 00:00:28.600
Factors of 46 are numbers that can be multiplied by something else to equal 46.
00:00:30.520 --> 00:00:32.190
Let’s start with 46.
00:00:33.670 --> 00:00:39.240
Is there a number we can multiply by 46 to equal 46?
00:00:40.970 --> 00:00:46.510
Yes, we can multiply 46 by one to equal 46.
00:00:47.920 --> 00:00:51.450
This makes 46 a multiple of 46.
00:00:53.360 --> 00:00:55.920
Let’s try another number, like 92.
00:00:57.790 --> 00:01:02.800
Is there a whole number we can multiply by 92 to equal 46?
00:01:04.800 --> 00:01:05.930
No, there’s not.
00:01:06.120 --> 00:01:07.470
It’s not possible.
00:01:07.780 --> 00:01:12.680
This means 92 is not a factor of 46.
00:01:14.240 --> 00:01:20.870
The next number seven, is there a number we can multiply by seven to equal 46?
00:01:22.670 --> 00:01:26.580
No, there’s nothing we can multiply by seven to equal 46.
00:01:27.580 --> 00:01:30.370
Seven is not a factor of 46.
00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:32.770
Let’s check the number three.
00:01:34.210 --> 00:01:37.870
Is there anything to multiply by three to equal 46?
00:01:39.720 --> 00:01:41.040
It’s not possible.
00:01:43.640 --> 00:01:46.150
The last number we’re going to check is two.
00:01:47.390 --> 00:01:51.460
Is there something we can multiply two by to equal 46?
00:01:53.020 --> 00:01:53.820
23.
00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:57.200
Two times 23 equals 46.
00:01:58.880 --> 00:02:02.660
And that makes two a factor of 46.
00:02:04.380 --> 00:02:09.170
46 and two are the only factors in the list given.
