### Factor Tree of 60 to Calculate the Factors

 60 2 30 2 15 3 5 60 = 2 x 30

30 = 2 x 15

15 = 3 x 5

If we write into multiples it would be 60 x 2

On splitting 30 further and writing it as multiples of numbers it would be 15 x 2.

On splitting 15 further and writing it as multiples of numbers it would be 5 x 3.

Altogether expressing the number in terms of prime factors would be 2 x 2 x 3 x 5.

### Ways to Find Factors of 60

Here we are providing different methods to find the factors of the number 60. 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 60. Let’s start with 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 as it results in 60 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 60 now and we can write as 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 and place those factors on the tree. similarly to prime numbers obtained in the first step 2, 2, 3, 5 obtained here are also prime numbers and we will end up these branches.
