A factor tree is a type of diagram in which we find the factors of a number and then the factors of those numbers until we can no longer factor them. We can get the factor tree of 16 easily by putting the number 16 in the input box of the Factor Tree Calculator.

Check the different methods to find the factor tree of 16 in the following sections

16 | ||||||||||

2 | 8 | |||||||||

16 = 2 x 8

8 = 2 x 4

4 = 2 x 2

If we write into multiples it would be 16 x 2

On splitting 8 further and writing it as multiples of numbers it would be 4 x 2.

On splitting 4 further and writing it as multiples of numbers it would be 2 x 2.

Altogether expressing the number in terms of prime factors would be 2 x 2 x 2 x 2.

Here we are providing different methods to find the factors of the number 16. They are splitting numbers and prime factors.

**Splitting Numbers **

We can divide the number into either of its two factors. In other words, we are looking for the numbers that when multiplied together eqaul 16. Let’s start with 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 as it results in 16 on multiplying. We will now find the factors or ancestors of split factors, just like in any family tree.

**Prime Factors**

Let’s take a look at 16 now and we can write as 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 and place those factors on the tree. similarly to prime numbers obtained in the first step 2, 2, 2, 2 obtained here are also prime numbers and we will end up these branches.

Here are examples of Factor tree calculations.
