Hello Math Aces! Today, we’re diving into the fascinating world of factors, focusing on the number 30. Ready to become a factor-finding expert? Let’s get started!

## What Are Factors?

Factors are numbers you can multiply together to get another number. For example, 2 and 15 are factors of 30 because when you multiply them, you get 30 (2 x 15 = 30). Pretty cool, right?

## How to Find Factors of 30

Finding factors is like solving a fun puzzle. You look for pairs of numbers that, when multiplied, equal 30. Here’s how you do it:

Start with 1 and 30. Since 1 x 30 = 30, 1 and 30 are factors.

Next, try 2. Since 2 x 15 = 30, 2 and 15 are factors.

Continue this way: 3 x 10 = 30, so 3 and 10 are factors.

Finally, 5 x 6 = 30, so 5 and 6 are also factors.

So, the factors of 30 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, and 30. Great job, Math Aces!

## Exploring Factor Pairs

Factor pairs are sets of two numbers that multiply to make 30. Here are the factor pairs of 30:

1 and 30

2 and 15

3 and 10

5 and 6

## Why Are Factors Important?

Understanding factors helps you with many math problems, including finding common factors and the greatest common factor (GCF). Knowing how to find factors of a number is a superpower in math!

## Fun Example: Finding Common Factors

Let’s find the common factors of 30 and 20. The factors of 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, and 20. The common factors are the numbers that appear in both lists. So, the common factors of 30 and 20 are 1, 2, 5, and 10. Easy, right?
