### What is Meant by Factoring?

In mathematics, factoring a number or the factorisation of a number is the process of breaking the number, which when multiplied together to get the original number. The process of splitting the number into its factors is called factoring of the numbers. For example, the factorisation of 12 is 1 × 2 × 2 × 3 and the factors are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12.

Thus,

× 12 = 12

× 6 = 12

× 4 = 12

There are different ways to find the factors of a number. They are:

• Grouping
• Greatest common factor
• The difference between two squares
• Sum or difference of two cubes
