To find all possible factors of 12:
Google Mathway, click on Algebra, type in 12 and click on ‘all possible factors’.
Answer given will be -12,-6,-4,-3,-2,-1,1,2,3,4,6,12 which includes the negative
integers as well.
Now find all possible factors of 30: ___________________________________
To find Lowest Common Multiple (LCM)
Get on Mathway, click on Algebra and type in 12,15 and click on ‘find the LCM’.
The answer given is 60. Similarly type in 32&times;5, 52&times;33 (use Mathway to type in
powers,and the star on Mathway keyboard for the multiplication sign. Note
that multiplication comes up as a dot) and find the LCM. The answer given is
675 and when you factorise it is 33&times;52.
