Factors and multiples

Kavitha brought 12 laddus from her home. She gave one laddu for each friend. She was able to give laddus to 12 friends without any remaining.

If she gives 2 for each, she could give to 6 friends.

If she gives 3 for each, She could give to 4 friends. Like this how can she give laddus so that no laddu would be remaining? She can give each 4, 6, 12.

Numbers that divide 12 without remaining are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12.

The numbers which can divide a number without leaving a remainder is called its factor.
