Hello, Math Aces! 🎉 Welcome to another exciting math adventure with Mr. Ace Math! Today, we’re diving into the fascinating world of factors, focusing on the number 24. Are you ready to become a factor-finding pro? Let’s get started!

**What are Factors?**

Factors are numbers that can be multiplied together to get another number. For example, when we talk about the factors of 24, we’re looking for all the pairs of numbers that, when multiplied, equal 24.

**Finding the Factors of 24**

To find the factors of 24, we start with the number 1 and go up. Let’s see how it works:

**1 x 24 = 24**: So, 1 and 24 are factors.**2 x 12 = 24**: That means 2 and 12 are also factors.**3 x 8 = 24**: So, 3 and 8 are factors.**4 x 6 = 24**: And 4 and 6 are factors too!

So, the complete list of factors of 24 is: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24. Easy, right?

**Common Factors and Greatest Common Factor**

When we find factors, sometimes we look for common factors between two numbers. For example, let’s find the common factors of 24 and 18.

The factors of 18 are: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 18.

The common factors of 24 and 18 are: 1, 2, 3, and 6.

The greatest common factor (GCF) is the largest number that both 24 and 18 can be divided by, which is 6 in this case. So, the GCF of 24 and 18 is 6!
