Factoring is one of the hardest problems of elementary algebra. Not all calculators are designed to handle it. To be able to factor on a calculator, the calculator must have a COMPUTER ALGEBRA SYSTEM. Some expensive calculators have that feature. Most calculators (scientific ones) do not have a CAS.
Consult an elementary (beginning) algebra texbook to read on and understand factoring. For homework it is more efficient to use standard techniques or a combination of techniques to factor polynomials.

What is least common factor


Normally, we look for the greatest common factor and the least common multiple.

To find the least common factor, we have to factor both numbers and see what the least common factor is. However, we know the one set of factors for every number is itself and one. For example, 56 and 49.

The factors of 56 are 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 14, 28 and 56.
The factors of 49 are 1, 7, 49.

What is the least common factor of both numbers? 1

So the least common factor of any two numbers is 1.

Any questions, let me know.

Good luck,

Paul

How do I get all the factors of a constant using my calculator?


There is a program on page 253 of the manual (http://support.casio.com/manualfile.php?rgn=5&cid=004002013) to get the prime factors of any number. You could modify the program to get all the factors.

Another way would be to do it manually. I start with the number 1 and go up to the square root of the number. The square root of 120 is 10.95, so let's go up to 11. Using 120 as an example:

120 /1 = 120 thus factor is (1, 120)
120/2 = 60 thus factor is (2, 60)
120/3 = 40 thus factor is (3, 40)
120/4 = 30 thus factor is (4, 30)
120/5 = 24 thus factor is (5, 24)
120/6 = 20 thus factor is (6, 20)
120/7 = 1.7 thus 7 not a factor
120/8 = 15 thus factor is (8,15)
120/9 = 13.3 thus 9 is not a factor
120/10 = 12 thus factor is (10,12)
120/11 = 10.9 thus 11 is not a factor.

Good luck.
