• One is a composite number. Because 1 has more divisors than 1 and itself.

• Highest or greatest common factor GCF of 1 is number

How To Calculate Prime Number Factors

• How do you calculate natural number factors? To get the number that you are factoring just multiply whatever number in the set of whole numbers with another in the same set. For example 7 has two factors 1 and 7. Number 6 has four factors 1, 2, 3 and 6 itself.
• It is simple to factor numbers in a natural numbers set. Because all numbers have a minimum of two factors(one and itself). For finding other factors you will start to divide the number starting from 2 and keep on going with dividers increasing until reaching the number that was divided by 2 in the beginning. All numbers without remainders are factors including the divider itself.
• Let's create an example for factorization with the number nine. It's not dividable by 2 evenly that's why we skip it(Remembe 4,5 so you know when to stop later). Nine can be divided by 3, now add 3 to your factors. Work your way up until you arrive to 5 (9 divided by 2, rounded up). In the end you have 1, 3 and 9 as a list of factors.
