What Are the Factors of 480?

The factors of 480 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 16, 20, 24, 30, 32, 40, 48, 60, 80, 96, 120, 160, 240, 480.

Calcating the factors of 480 is straightforward. First, every number is divisible by itself and 1.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 480 = 480, so put these into our factor list.
    1...480

  2. Take 2. 2 x 240 = 480, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...240480

  3. Now take 3. 3 x 160 = 480, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    123...160240480

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 120 = 480, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234...120160240480

  5. Now try 5. 5 x 96 = 480, so put these into our factor list.
    12345...96120160240480

  6. Try 6. 6 x 80 = 480, which means we add these to our factor list.
    123456...8096120160240480

  7. Take 7... no. 480/7 isn't a whole number. So we skip 7.

  8. Now take 8. 8 x 60 = 480, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1234568...608096120160240480

  9. Next try 9... nope! 480/9 isn't a whole number. So we skip 9.

  10. Now try 10. 10 x 48 = 480, which means we add these to our factor list.
    123456810...48608096120160240480

  11. Try 11... no. 480/11 isn't a whole number. So we skip 11.

  12. Take 12. 12 x 40 = 480, so we add these to our list of factors.
    12345681012...4048608096120160240480

  13. Now take 13... nope! 480/13 isn't a whole number. So we skip 13.

  14. Next try 14... no good. 480/14 isn't a whole number. So we skip 14.

  15. Now try 15. 15 x 32 = 480, so now we put these in our list of factors.
    1234568101215...324048608096120160240480

  16. Try 16. 16 x 30 = 480, so we add these to our list of factors.
    123456810121516...30324048608096120160240480

  17. Take 17... nope! 480/17 isn't a whole number. So we skip 17.

  18. Now take 18... no good. 480/18 isn't a whole number. So we skip 18.

  19. Next try 19... no. 480/19 isn't a whole number. So we skip 19.

  20. Now try 20. 20 x 24 = 480, so we add these to our list of factors.
    12345681012151620...2430324048608096120160240480

  21. Try 21... nope! 480/21 isn't a whole number. So we skip 21.

  22. Take 22... no good. 480/22 isn't a whole number. So we skip 22.

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