48 has ten (10) factors, here are all the factors of 48: ** 1; 2; 3; 4; 6; 8; 12; 16; 24; 48.
**

The number of factors of 48 is greater than 2 because 48 is not a prime number, it is a composite number. A composite number is an integer that you can find by multiplying at least 2 prime numbers, A composite number is in fact a multiple of prime numbers.

The factors of 48 are also called divisors of 48, when 48 is divided by one of its factors, the division gives integer quotient and zero remainder.

If we multiply a natural number by another natural number to get 48 then the two numbers whose the multiplication gives 48 are factors of 48 and 48 is their common multiple. The division of 48 by one of its factors gives a quotient that is another factor of 48.

Example: 2 multiplied by 24 gives 48 then 2 and 24 are factors of 48. If we divide 48 by 24 we find an integer quotient equal to 2 and zero remainder.

Remark: There are five pairs of factors of 48 whose the multiplication gives 48: 1 and 48 (48 * 1= 48); 2 and 24 (24 * 2 =48); 3 and 16 (3*16=48); 4 and 12 (4*12=48); 6 and 8 (6*8 =48).

The prime factors of 48 are:**2 and 3**

The prime factorization of 48 is:**2*2*2*2*3 = 2^4 * 3 **
