The process of finding the factors of a number is called as factoring a number.
The positive integers which are dividing the number exactly are called as factors of a number. Numbers that are divided by 1 and itself is called as prime numbers.
Some of the prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 13.
Factors could be numerical or literal. Numerical factors are numbers used as factors whereas, literal factors are alphabets or letters used to represent the numbers being multiplied.
Interchanging the factors does not alter the result and it is done to check the product, to simplify or just to re-arrange the factors in a preferred order.

Factor is defined as a number that divides exactly into another number. In the example shown below, we can see the steps for factoring numbers.
Find the factors of 58.
58 is divided by 1, 2, 29 and 58
So, 1, 2, 29 and 58 are the factors of the given number 58
1, 2, 29 and 58
