Factor
To factor a number means to break it up into numbers that can be multiplied together to get the original number. 

EXAMPLES:

 

   6 = 3 x 2  so, factors of 6 are 3 and 2

 

   9 = 3 x 3  so, factors of 9 are 3 and 3

 

Sometimes, numbers can be factored into different combinations.

EXAMPLE,

 

   8 = 4 x 2 = 2 x 2 x 2

 

  18 = 9 x 2 = 6 x 3 = 3 x 2 x 3

OR

Mathematics . to express (a mathematical quantity) as a product of two or more quantities of like.

 − y 2 = ( x  + y  ) ( x − y  ).
