The numbers that can be multiplied together to get the original number are called its factors. To find the factors of 192, we need to find all the pairs of numbers that add up to 192 when multiplied. Here are the steps to take:

Step 1: Write down the first few numbers that are positive.

First, we write down the first few positive numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...

Step 2: Figure out which pairs of numbers add up to 192.

We need to find all the pairs of numbers from the list above that add up to 192. First, we can divide 192 by each number on the list and see if the resulting number is a whole number.

192 ÷ 1 = 192

192 ÷ 2 = 96

192 ÷ 3 = 64 (not an even number)

192 ÷ 4 = 48

192 ÷ 5 = 38.4 (not a whole number) (not a whole number)

192 ÷ 6 = 32 (not an even number)

192 ÷ 7 = 27.42 (not a whole number) (not a whole number)

192 ÷ 8 = 24

192 ÷ 9 = 21.33 (not a whole number) (not a whole number)

192 ÷ 10 = 19.2 (not a whole number) (not a whole number)

We can see that 1 times 192, 2 times 96, 4 times 48, and 8 times 24 all add up to 192.

Step 3: Make a list of all the factors.

The factors of 192 are the pairs of numbers we found in step 2, plus 1 and 192 itself. So, the things that make up 192 are:

1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 96, 192

In the end, all the pairs of numbers that add up to 192, plus 1 and 192 itself, are the factors of 192. By following the steps above, we can find the factors of any number with ease.
