Given number is 36

The factor tree of 36 is as follows:

36 | ||||||||||

2 | 18 | |||||||||

2 | 9 | |||||||||

3 | 3 | |||||||||

36 = 2 x 18

18 = 2 x 9

9 = 3 x 3

If we write into multiples it would be 36 x 2

On splitting 18 further and writing it as multiples of numbers it would be 9 x 2.

On splitting 9 further and writing it as multiples of numbers it would be 3 x 3.

Here are examples of Factor tree calculations.

Here we are providing different methods to find the factors of the number 36. 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 36. Let’s start with 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 as it results in 36 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 36 now and we can write as 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 and place those factors on the tree. similarly to prime numbers obtained in the first step 2, 2, 3, 3 obtained here are also prime numbers and we will end up these branches.
