The multiplication method finds the pair of factors that give 63 as their product.
Step-by-step process
Step 1: Find the pair of numbers whose product is 63.
Step 2: The factors are those numbers, when multiplied, give 63.
Step 3: Make a list of numbers whose product will be 63.
A list of numbers whose products are 63 is given below:
1 × 63 = 63
3 × 21 = 63
7 × 9 = 63
The division method finds the numbers that fully divide the given number.
Step-by-step process:
Step 1: Since every number is divisible by 1, 1 will always be a factor. Example: 63÷1 = 63
Step 2: Move to the next integer. Both divisor and quotient are the factors.
