Divisors of 6
In this article we are going to list out the divisors of 6, explain and define what a divisor is, and also show you how to calculate and find the divisors of 6 (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 6. The divisors of 6 must be a whole number, and the resulting quotient must also be a whole number.
6 / Divisor (Whole Number) = Quotient (Whole Number)
To do this manually, you can divide the number 6 by every whole number from 1 to 6. For example:
- 6 / 1 = 6
- 6 / 2 = 3
- 6 / 3 = 2
- 6 / 4 = 1.5
- 6 / 5 = 1.2
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 6.
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 6 automatically for you and found the entire list of divisors.
Here are all of the divisors of 6:
If you need the divisors of 6 in a comma separated list, here they are:
1, 2, 3, and 6
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.
