## Factor of 156: An Introduction

The factors of $156$ are the numbers that completely divide $156$ and yield zero as a remainder. In addition, these divisors result in a quotient of whole numbers. These divisors, as well as whole number quotients, are referred to as factors. The factors of number $156$ can be expressed in positive form as well as in negative form. Similarly, the pair factors of the number $156$ can be represented using the positive and negative forms.

## What are the Factors of $156$?

In Mathematics, the numbers that divide $156$ completely without leaving any remainder are the factors of $156$. In other words, the factors of $156$ are the numbers multiplied in pairs, resulting in the original number $156$. Since the product of two negative numbers is a positive number, $156$ has negative and positive factors, but we will use only positive ones.

Let's start by checking for the factors of $156$. We start with $1$ and check $2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7$ up to $78$ (half of $78$) to see if any numbers can divide $156$ and leave zero as the remainder, then the corresponding divisor and quotient will be treated as the factors of $156$.

$156 \div 1 = 156$

$156 \div 2 = 78$

$156 \div 3 = 52$

$156 \div 4 = 39$
