Python Program to Find the Factors of a Number

The factor of any number is a whole number which exactly divides the number into a whole number without leaving any remainder.

For example, 3 is a factor of 9 because 3 divides 9 evenly leaving no remainder.

Problem

Create a Python program to find all the factors of a number.

Algorithm

Step 1:  Take a number

Step 2: Loop over every number from 1 to the given number

Step 3: If the loop iterator evenly divides  the provided number i.e. number % i == 0 print it.

Program

number = 69

print("The factors of {} are,".format(number))

for i in range(1,number+1):
    if number % i == 0:
        print(i)

Output

The factors of 69 are,
1
3
23
69

Print factors of a user-provided number

number = int(input("Enter a number "))
print("The factors of {} are,".format(number))

for i in range(1,number+1):
    if number % i == 0:
        print(i)

Output

Enter a number  469
The factors of 469 are,
1
7
67
469
