Factors of 309

So you need to find the factors of 309 do you? In this quick guide we'll describe what the factors of 309 are, how you find them and list out the factor pairs of 309 for you to prove the calculation works. Let's dive in!

Factors of 309 Definition

When we talk about the factors of 309, what we really mean is all of the positive and negative integers (whole numbers) that can be evenly divided into 309. If you were to take 309 and divide it by one of its factors, the answer would be another factor of 309.

Let's look at how to find all of the factors of 309 and list them out.

How to Find the Factors of 309

We just said that a factor is a number that can be divided equally into 309. So the way you find and list all of the factors of 309 is to go through every number up to and including 309 and check which numbers result in an even quotient (which means no decimal place).

Doing this by hand for large numbers can be time consuming, but it's relatively easy for a computer program to do it. Our calculator has worked this out for you. Here are all of the factors of 309:

  • 309 ÷ 1 = 309
  • 309 ÷ 3 = 103
  • 309 ÷ 103 = 3
  • 309 ÷ 309 = 1

All of these factors can be used to divide 309 by and get a whole number. The full list of positive factors for 309 are:

1, 3, 103, and 309

Negative Factors of 309

Technically, in math you can also have negative factors of 309. If you are looking to calculate the factors of a number for homework or a test, most often the teacher or exam will be looking for specifically positive numbers.

However, we can just flip the positive numbers into negatives and those negative numbers would also be factors of 309:

-1, -3, -103, and -309

How Many Factors of 309 Are There?

As we can see from the calculations above there are a total of 4 positive factors for 309 and 4 negative factors for 309 for a total of 8 factors for the number 309.

There are 4 positive factors of 309 and 4 negative factors of 309. Wht are there negative numbers that can be a factor of 309?

Factor Pairs of 309

A factor pair is a combination of two factors which can be multiplied together to equal 309. For 309, all of the possible factor pairs are listed below:

  • 1 x 309 = 309
  • 3 x 103 = 309

Just like before, we can also list out all of the negative factor pairs for 309:

  • -1 x -309 = 309
  • -3 x -103 = 309

Notice in the negative factor pairs that because we are multiplying a minus with a minus, the result is a positive number.

So there you have it. A complete guide to the factors of 309. You should now have the knowledge and skills to go out and calculate your own factors and factor pairs for any number you like.
