# Python Program to Find the Factors of a Number The factors of a number are the whole numbers that divide that number evenly, without leaving a remainder. For example, the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12, because these are the only numbers that can be multiplied together to give 12.

## Python Code : #

The below Python program finds the factors of a number:

``````
# take input from user
num = int(input("Enter a number: "))

# iterate from 1 to the number and check for factors
factors = []
for i in range(1, num+1):
if num % i == 0:
factors.append(i)

# print the factors
print("The factors of", num, "are:", factors)

``````

In this program, we first take input from the user for the number whose factors are to be found. We then use a for loop to iterate from 1 to the number, checking for factors using the modulus operator (%). If a factor is found, we append it to a list called factors.

Finally, we print the factors of the number using the print() function. The output will be in the format of “The factors of (num) are: (factors)”.

For example :

``````
Enter a number: 40
The factors of 40 are: [1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 40]
