Calcating the factors of 170 is straightforward. Take 170 and the number 1. Those are the first two factors.


  1. Try 1. 1 x 170 = 170, so put these into our factor list.
    1...170

  2. Take 2. 2 x 85 = 170, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...85170

  3. Now take 3... no. 170/3 isn't a whole number. So we skip 3.

  4. Next try 4... no luck. 170/4 isn't a whole number. So we skip 4.

  5. Now try 5. 5 x 34 = 170, so put these into our factor list.
    125...3485170

  6. Try 6... no good. 170/6 isn't a whole number. So we skip 6.

  7. Take 7... no. 170/7 isn't a whole number. So we skip 7.
