Divisors of 1

In this article we are going to list out the divisors of 1, explain and define what a divisor is, and also show you how to calculate and find the divisors of 1 (or any number) yourself.

When you are trying to solve a word problem that is written like "X divided by Y equals Z", there are three main parts which we are concerned with. These are the Dividend, the Divisor, and the Quotient.

Dividend (X) / Divisor (Y) = Quotient

We are looking in this case for the divisors of 1. The divisors of 1 must be a whole number, and the resulting quotient must also be a whole number.

1 / Divisor (Whole Number) = Quotient (Whole Number)

To do this manually, you can divide the number 1 by every whole number from 1 to 1. For example:

  • 1 / 1 = 1
  • 1 / 2 = 0.5
  • 1 / 3 = 0.33
  • 1 / 4 = 0.25
  • 1 / 5 = 0.2
  • etc...

Once you have done that you can go through the list of divisors and find only those that have a quotient that is a whole number. Each of those is a divisor of 1.

This can be done a lot quicker and a lot easier by computers than it can be by hand, so we have gone through all of the divisors of 1 automatically for you and found the entire list of divisors.

Here are all of the divisors of 1:

  • 1

If you need the divisors of 1 in a comma separated list, here they are:

1

If you want to practice this yourself you can grab a pencil and a piece of paper and try to find the divisors of another whole number from 4-100.
